Radar Science and Operations Groups


The ARM Radar Science and Operations Groups provide enhanced coordination with the Atmospheric System Research (ASR) science team to ensure ARM radar instruments and data products are producing the information necessary for improving climate model physics.

Organizational Structure

There are two groups in this category:

  1. Radar Engineering and Operations Group
  2. Radar Science Group.

The Radar Science and Operations Group is responsible for engineering, data product development, documentation, operations, maintenance, and performance of ARM radars. It works with the Radar Science Group to ensure the needs of the science community are met, and reports to the Associate Director for Operations.

Current Radar Engineering and Operations Group members include:

  • Nitin Bharadwaj, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • Andrei Lindenmaier, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • Bradley Isom, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • Joseph Hardin, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • Alyssa Matthews, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
  • Karen Johnson, Brookhaven National Laboratory
  • Scott Collis, Argonne National Laboratory
  • Jonathan Helmus, Argonne National Laboratory

The Radar Engineering Group identifies scientific performance goals, objectives, measurement gaps, data products, algorithms, methodologies, assessments, and metrics necessary to meet the needs of the climate science community. The Radar Science Group reports to the ASR Program Managers.

Current Radar Science Group members include:

  • Pavlos Kollias, Stony Brook University and Brookhaven National Laboratory
  • Eugene Clothiaux, Pennsylvania State University
  • Edward Luke, Brookhaven National Laboratory
  • Mariko Oue, Stony Brook University
  • Katia Lamer, Pennsylvania State University
