Polarimetric radar hydrometeor identification, and NOx
production by lightning
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology T-28 armored research airplane
and its crew of pilots and scientists conducted field operations near Greeley,
from July 21 to August 3, 2003. We were based at the Greeley, Colorado,
airport, and coordinated our flight activities with the Colorado State
University (CSU) CHILL polarimetric meteorological Doppler radar facility. These
activities supported research into polarimetric radar analysis techniques by V.
N. Bringi and V. Chandrasekar of CSU, and P. L. Smith of South Dakota School of
Mines and Technology (SDSMT). In addition, observations of NO in clouds in which
lightning was occurring supported thunderstorm electrical and chemical modelling
efforts of John Helsdon at SDSMT.
