Abstract

A case study is presented of refractivity gradient height-profile retrieval using a 915 MHz wind profiler operated by the UK Meteorological Office at Camborne, UK. The retrieved gradient compares well with that obtained from concurrent radiosonde data gathered at the same location, thus demonstrating the potential of such profilers for the investigation of duct dynamics and the collection of unbiased duct statistics.
