NSF project

Principal Investigators: B. Notaros and V. N. Bringi (Colorado State University)

Detailed snow particle imagery will be taken by a custom-designed multiple view digital camera.  The resultant 3D representations of the particles will be used to initialize an improved electromagnetic scattering model.  The model results will be compared with dual-polarization observations from EOL S-PolKa and CSU CHILL of snow echoes at the camera site.
