  1. Comparisons of TPARC P3DWL Wind Profiles with Dropsondes in the Presence of Clouds D. Emmitt, K. Godwin and S. Greco Simpson Weather Associates WG-SBLW 2-3 February, 2010

  2. P3DWL for TPARC/TCS-08 1.6 um coherent WTX (ARL/LMCT) 10 cm bi-axis scanner (NASA) P3 and other parts (NRL) Analyses software (SWA/CIRPAS)

  3. Bi-axial scanner and instrument rack

  4. Typhoon Hagupit (0200GMT , September 22, 2008,)

  5. Multi layer clouds (0151 9/22)

  6. Deep aerosol layer capped with thin stratus (0232 9/22)

  7. Multi cloud layers (0041 9/22)

  8. Deep aerosol “misty” layer (0111 9/22)

  9. High dense cloud (0131 9/22)

  10. Multi layer clouds (0151 9/22)

  11. Deep aerosol layer capped with thin stratus (0232 9/22)

  12. Flight level clouds (0245 9/22)

  13. Summary • Airborne DWL is beyond the technology demo and potpourri science stage • Unique and “critical mass” observations are now available for use in PBL investigations and model validation/development • Airborne DWL investigations for 2010 will focus upon tropical cyclones…. Noteworthy: active optical remote sensing inside a phenomena defined in large part by clouds.
