Session 5 New in-Situ Sensor Development

Wednesday, 11 June 2014: 3:30 PM-5:45 PM
Salon A-B (Denver Marriott Westminster)
Host: 17th Symposium on Meteorological Observation and Instrumentation
Junhong Wang, NCAR, EOL, Boulder, CO and Terry Hock, NCAR, EOL/ISF, Boulder, CO

NCAR is interested in developments on new sensors applicable to surface networks, dropsonde and radiosonde, and potentially UAVs. Examples are a UT/LS water vapor, O3, SO2, cloud/aerosol and others. We are developing infrastructure to deploy large surface networks in field experiments. Our droposonde system can be used in regular research aircraft, medium and large UAVs and stratospheric superpressure balloons. It would be very beneficial for the community to use these platforms for measurements beyond current pressure, temperature, humidity and wind parameters.
