CSET

CSET starts on 1 July and will study the evolution of the BL aerosol, cloud, and thermodynamic structures along trajectories within the north-Pacific trade-winds using the NSF/NCAR HIAPER.

WV-DIAL

EOL is getting closer to providing the community with a reliable new Water Vapor Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) for enhanced, high-resolution, accurate and continuous measurements of water vapor.

ARISTO

ARISTO will provide critical and much needed flight test opportunities for newly developed or recently modified airborne instrumentation.

DEPLOYMENT

CSET | 1 July - 15 August 2015

The Cloud Systems Evolution in the Trades (CSET) study aims to describe and explain the evolution of the boundary layer aerosol, cloud, and thermodynamic structures along trajectories within the north-Pacific trade-winds using the NSF/NCAR HIAPER Gulfstream V. This effort includes characterization of the cloud, precipitation and aerosol fields in the stratocumulus and the fair-weather cumulus regimes within the subtropical easterlies over the northern Pacific. These characterizations along trajectories will be designed to aid in our understanding and simulation of the transition between the two convective regimes—a critical factor in the climate system.

DEVELOPMENT

449 MHz MODULAR WIND PROFILER

The MPN (Modular Profiling Network) is a new development to extend the capabilities of the Integrated Sounding System (ISS).  A center piece of the system in the 449 MHz modular wind profiler, a new scalable radar to profile the wind and structure of the atmospheric boundary layer and troposphere.

DATA SERVICES

DATA LEGACY

For nearly half a century, field experiments have been conducted from the tropics to the polar regions involving intensive observations of atmosphere, ocean, and land processes over selected locations of interest around the globe. The atmospheric component of field program data sets that tends to have the greatest long-term value to the science community is that provided by atmospheric sounding systems.

DISCOVERY

TECHNICAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (TIP)

EOL's Technical Internship Program (TIP) will be accepting applications in September 2015, providing unique experiences to prepare science support focused students from two-year colleges and vocational/technical institutions for successful careers. TIP interns work on projects with EOL scientific and science support staff to learn skills that will assist them in their career and academic advancement. During the internship, TIP participants are paired with mentors and develop knowledge to help them in future science support careers related to geosciences.
