FIELDWORK

Research/Observation Title

C-band Weather Radar observation in RV MIRAI cruise

Science Summary (common)

Low level clouds over the Arctic Ocean which usually dominate during summer have a key role for sea/ice surface heat budget. In addition, cyclones which modify the sea-ice distributions are substantially important to understand the air-ice-sea interaction. To capture the broad cloud-precipitation systems and their temporal and spatial evolution over the Arctic Ocean, three-dimensional radar echo structure and wind fields of rain/snow clouds was obtained by C-band Doppler radar observation. At the same time, scans are performed to evaluate the performance of the radar, and to develop the better strategy of the radar observation.
