Abstract

The cloudy, humid atmosphere remains the most important weather and climate forecasting chal-lenge. Airborne remote sensors such as radars and lidars have revolutionized information on aero�sol, moisture, cloud, and precipitation vertical structure, increasing the information gathered from in situ measurements alone. In recog�nition, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has expanded its aircraft deployment resources to the remote sensors. The integrated water-phase measurements provide important geophysical constraints on hydrome�teor and vapor profiles derived from active sensors, and the profiling and mapping of the atmosphere is more comprehensive than that available from in situ observations.
