Research/Observation Title

W-band Cloud Profiling Doppler Radar (FALCON-A) at in Ny-Alesund

Science Summary (common)

[purpose] In order to investigate optical and microphysical properties and internal structures of various clouds, long-term continuous measurements including radar reflectivity and doppler velocity are performed with a ground-based cloud radar. [outline] The cloud radar is installed in a 20-ft-length robust container and placed in the west of Rabben Station. The radar is remotely controlled via Iinternet, and the data are regularly transferred to a data server in Chiba University. Installation will be done in September, and the measurement will begin in October, 2013.
