Lifcoc is a proposal within the cops bundle only project in ppl

  • LIFCOC is a proposal within the “COPS bundle”

    • only project in PPL

    • POLDIRAD only instrument to measure4-d microphysics

  • Its goal is:

    “to study the complete life cycle of deep convection in mountainous terrain from initiation to decay”

  • It aims to answer the hypotheses and science questions of COPS and in particular the ones of the working group PPL:

    • Location and timing of CI depends on the humidity (and wind) field

    • Life cycle of single cells is affected by orography, but not the one of larger systems

    • PPL 1: what is role of orography for the development of cells ?

    • PPL 2: does the orography affect the hydrometeor distribution ?

    • PPL 3: how does the RDSD change during the life cycle ?

Using

  • radar

  • lidar

  • lightning measurements

  • numerical simulations

    to describe

  • the life cycle of precipitation

  • the variation of rain drop size distribution

  • the development of lightning

    in relation to orography
