APAR

EOL is beginning development of a novel 5-cm Airborne Phased Array Radar (APAR) with dual-Doppler and dual-polarization capabilities to be operational on the NSF/NCAR C-130 aircraft.

ORCAS

ORCAS is an NSF sponsored airborne field campaign that will advance our understanding of the physical and biological controls on air-sea exchange of O2 and CO2 in the Southern Ocean.

EOL Research Publication

Strong, unsteady atmospheric wakes are often observed in satellite images leeward of Madeira when conditions favoring the formation of atmospheric wakes occur under the influence of the Azores high.
