Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Remote sensing instrumentation has long been used to provide insight into the atmospheric boundary layer. Wind profiler radars can provide much information about tropospheric wind fields and also turbulence. Synergetic use of the 915 MHz wind profiler and radiometer data from Camborne has been made in the presence of ducting conditions to obtain refractivity and humidity profiles. These profiles compare well with those retrieved from radiosonde data analysis.
