Cooperative Atmospheric Surface Exchange Study 1997

Project Description
From 22 April to 22 May 1997 the first expedition to the CASES
site was made by boundary layer and radar meteorology scientists
from Universities and government laboratories. For further
information on the CASES site, collaborators, and philosophy,
please contact the CASES website,

expedition were two-fold: a) observe and model the effects of
soil moisture on the fair weather boundary layer's diurnal cycle
and b) Begin a determination of the relationship between S-band
polarized radar signals, NEXRAD radar signals, and observed
rainfall. The two objectives covered most of the weather events
that occurred during the expedition.
