Short summary
A novel, airborne pod-based millimeter wavelength radar, which operates both on the NCAR Gulfstream V aircraft and as a ground-based sensor, opens up new observational opportunities for the research community. The radar’s millimeter wavelength, dual-polarization, Doppler remote sensing capabilities generate measurements that provide the most complete picture of cloud physics available to the atmospheric science community. It offers unique observations on the formation and evolution of clouds.
