Welcome

Our mission is to promote the use of radars in weather and climate research, from severe weather nowcasting to cloud climatology. Our group is interested in the optimization of radar systems and networks through hardware and software innovations. The translation of radar observables to physical parameters using both forward and inversion methods is a key area of research for our group. Our scientific interest is in the physical understanding of the atmospheric component of the hydrological cycle (e.g., cloud, precipitation, radiation and thermodynamics) and the improved representation of cloud and precipitation processes in global, regional and storm scale numerical models.


 

In Focus

Today, we are entering the golden age of ground-based radar observations, propelled by continuous technological innovations that led to the development of sophisticated radar systems and the use of distributed collaborative adaptive observing networks. This can help us to evolve beyond past observational constraints that view only parts of the atmosphere, and provide a new holistic view of the atmosphere in action. At the radar system level, state-of-the-art scanning cloud radars capable of detecting the 3D structure and monitoring the entire lifetime of small cloud entities and layers are now available.
