Presentation Transcript

  1. 1. In-situ, reference quality, multi-variable atmospheric profiling for climate studies with miniaturized-sensor package on variety platforms • Goal: Develop a miniaturized sensor package deployable on weather balloons, aircrafts, stratospheric balloons, UAVs and other platforms to measure pressure, temperature, humidity, 3-D wind, ozone, cloud, aerosol and other variables from the surface to the lower stratosphere. • Uniqueness: reference-quality, integration, miniaturization, flexibility • EOL strengths/weaknesses • Potential science/facility priorities • First steps • Connections with EOL Strategic Frontiers

  3. Current capability & sensor priorities Driftsonde AMMA T-PARC Concordiasi C-130 P-3 Radiosonde Global Hawk WISPER: 2-3/2011 HS3: 8-9/2011 and beyond Chemistry sensors SO2/O3/CO2/H2O G-5 iMEMS Accelerometer

  4. Connections with EOL Strategic Plan Frontiers • Improve observing capabilities for weather and climate phenomena with high socio-economic impact: Hurricane, volcanoes, tornados … • Provide New or Significantly Strengthened Capabilities to Support Observational Research in Key Areas Where Support Needs are Growing in Importance: Biogeoscience, water cycle, climate process, satellite validation … • Develop New Capabilities That Focus On Processes at Interfaces in the Atmosphere: UT/LS, upper surface of the Ocean … • Develop new calibration and testing facilities, including test-bed capabilities, for the community, either in collaboration with other agencies or specifically for NSF-supported research: calibration facility for water-vapor sensors, field test-bed, uncertainty characterization …

  5. 2. Climate model verification: To integrate data for specific applications of climate model intercomparison (CMIP5) and verification projects from past field projects; To work with climate modelers to develop analysis methods to derive products; To collaborate with others to identify and plan new field projects. http://gcss-dime.giss.nasa.gov/
