wacrarscl > W-band Cloud Radar Active Remote Sensing of CloudVAP Type(s) > Baseline • Evaluation

Observations from the 95 GHz W-band ARM Cloud Radar (WACR), micropulse lidar, and ceilometer have been combined using the new WACR Active Remote Sensing of Clouds (WACR-ARSCL) VAP (Kollias and Miller 2007) to produce cloud boundaries and time-height profiles of cloud location, radar moments, and linear depolarization ratio fields for ARM Mobile Facility WACR deployments.
