Supercooled Liquid and Mixed-phase Cloud Profiler (SLiM)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

The aim of this project is to define a suite of radars and radiometers for quantifying supercooled liquid water in mixed-phase clouds, focusing on millimeter and submillimeter-wave sensors for airborne, and eventually spaceborne, platforms. The primary focus is to determine the requirements of a G-band radar for observing mixed-phase clouds. Additional active and passive bands that will facilitate such measurements will be identified.
