TCAD: Turbulence Characterization and Detection


The Turbulence Characterization and Detection (TCAD) field program was conducted near Greeley, Colorado during June 1999. Participating agencies included the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA), the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the AlliedSignal Corporation, the Rockwell-Collins Corporation, the Colorado State University (CSU) and the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SOM).
