he Radar Meteorology Group (Department
of Atmospheric Science
) studies a broad range of cloud
properties using traditional Doppler, spaceborne,
and cutting edge
polarimetric radar technology. Our research foci include the
dynamical, microphysical, and electrical characteristics of
individual convective cells, severe thunderstorms and
mesoscale convective systems in the tropics and midlatitudes.
We also study midlatitude winter storms. The group is actively
involved in field projects around the world, and many of our
projects use radar data from the CSU-CHILL
National Radar Facility.
