CRD Interests in UNSTABLE

  • Cold region climate processes

    • Precipitation-Elevation relationships

    • Processes and prediction of severe precipitation events (high/low) related to orography

    • Model evaluation (QPF, PWV)

    • Surface processes leading to severe weather (e.g. evapotranspiration, soil moisture, etc)


CRD Contributions to UNSTABLE

  • 3 FOPEX sites: hourly data transmission and access to data archives, site maintenance

  • 1 mobile/static and 1 static upper-air system

  • ~50 RS-92G sondes and associated expendables

  • 1 mobile/remote GPS for IPWV

  • Manpower: 1 researcher, 1 technician, 1+ co-op students, potentially 1+ support staff
