CAPRIS Research Highlights

  • Addressing Mesoscale processes
    • TC research and forecasting
  • Measuring Aerosol and Cloud Structure
    • BL and full depth structure and tracking
  • Climate Change Components (e.g. clouds,
  • Precipitation, water vapor, aeorsols)
    • Impacts local , regional and global
  • Data assimilation and model validation
slide3

CAPRIS Technology Highlights

  • Eye safe Lidars
  • Phased array CM radar
  • World class aircraft platforms
  • Real-time Data processing and display
  • Processed data satellite relay to the ground
  • Ground based deployment
slide4

The NSF Opportunity

  • Mid-Size Infrastructure for Atmospheric Sciences
  • ATM maintains a mid-size infrastructure account that can be used to build and/or acquire community facilities.
  • Several groups will be competing for available funds
  • General Considerations (highlights)
  • Community facility
  • Available funds for larger projects
  • Instrumentation and observing platforms are eligible
  • Partnerships with university, federal, private, or international institutions are encouraged.
  • EOL has been encouraged to submit a White-paper for CAPRIS
  • Key time for community comment and advice on present concepts
  • Revised White Paper Document due to NSF Mid March 2007
  • NSF ‘go-ahead’ decision for full proposal expected in summer 2007
  • NSF funding decision anticipated in fall 2007

CAPRIS Configurations -- Airborne

CM-Radar

  • Four active element scanning array (AESA) conformal antennas
    • C band side-looking
    • X band top, bottom looking
  • Dual Doppler (V, σv)
  • 4 x resolution of current system due to simultaneous fore and aft beams from all four antennas
  • Dual polarization H,V linear
    • ZH, ZDR, KDP, LDR, RHOHV

MM-Radar

  • Dual polarization H,V linear
    • ZH, ZDR, KDP, LDR, RHOHV
  • Dual wavelength (W,Ka)
  • Pod-based scanning
  • Doppler (V, σv)

The ‘Community’ in CAPRIS

A Development Partnership

  • Institutional Collaboration (24 people from >6 groups)
  • Scientific and Technical Collaboration (20 people from >15 Educational Institutions)
  • Town Hall Meetings at Major Conferences (ERAD, AGU, AMS
  • Special Visit to institutions for seminars
  • Special Focus Round tables (Mesoscale and Biogeosciences
  • Seminars adjunct to Project Workshops
  • International Exchange (e.g. ICMCS, Taiwan, Japan, Germany)
slide13

Three Major AESA Options

  • X-band dual-pol, alternating H,V transmit/receive
  • C-band dual-pol, simultaneous H,V transmit/receive
  • Wide-band (X,C) dual-pol, simultaneous H,V transmit/receive

Some Final Thoughts on CAPRIS

  • Community resource for addressing key science questions
  • Airborne and ground based deployment options
  • Radar and lidar components
  • Community input to design requirements
  • Seeking collaboration with community, agencies and industry
  • Active testbed for R&D and collaboration
