Abstract

Polarimetric Radar at the reflectivity (Z , in the linear polarization mode) are DR Geophysics Laboratory computed, displayed, and recorded in real time to The Ground Based Remote Sensing Branch of the aid the acquisition in analysis of the full-matrix data Geophysics Laboratory (U.S. Air Force), in Massa- and to support other research programs. chusetts, recently completed the modification of its The laboratory is using the polarimetric radar ini- 11-cm Doppler radar to permit the measurement of tially for investigations of cloud electrification. Other the complete polarimetric matrix of signals backscat- potential research uses include cloud microphysics, tered from meteorological media. This radar is be- precipitation measurement, and signal propagation lieved to be the only meteorological research radar phenomenology. in the world having such capability at this wave- The Geophysics Laboratory supports or participates length. in several programs for students and visiting scientists. Signals can be transmitted with either linear or These encompass summer employment for under- graduate and postgraduate students, 12-month post- circular polarization and switched pulse-to-pulse doctoral appointments, summer appointments for either between horizontal and vertical or between academic faculty, and yearlong visits by experienced right and left circular polarization.
