The WCL recorded backscatter intensity and


depolarization from aerosols and cloud particles above the UWKA during CAMPS, a field project over the Rocky Mountains.


Basic Overview


The Wyoming Cloud Lidar (WCL) is designed to work with the WCR to enhance the observational capacities of LAOF aircraft by providing high-resolution cloud base measure- ments and cloud extinction coefficient profiles. The WCR can be used as a ground-based facility, and the WCR and WCL can be used together on either the UWKA or the NSF/ NCAR C-130 aircraft.


Typical Research Applications


The WCL depicts reflectivity and velocity fields at a high spatial resolution, and can collect data in situations for which traditional reflectivity would be too low. When the radar and lidar measurements are used together, researchers can obtain better cloud macrophysical and microphysical property characterizations than they have in the past. The two instruments have been deployed on several field projects since 2007.
