A narrow beam fast filter radiometer has been developed for the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program. The radiometer is intended to operate alongside a lidar at ARM sites in a lidar/radiometer (LIRAD) configuration. The radiometer detects in three narrow bands at 8.62-, 10.86-, and 12.04-m central wavelengths in the atmospheric window. In… (More)
Cells in the parietal motor areas 5, MIP, and 7b have spatially tuned activity during movements. Lesions, however, do not disrupt visual reaching or learned nonspatial movement selection. The role of such parietal cells in sensorimotor coordinate transformations is unclear. The present experiment investigates whether the parietal motor areas are concerned… (More)
The retrieval of cloud properties from Lidar/Radiometer data by the LIRAD method is described. Several data sets taken by the CSIRO Division of Atmospheric Research are now available for such retrievals as a result of several major field experiments during the past six years. The LIRAD method is reviewed briefly and its application to the various data sets… (More)
The objective of this paper is to investigate whether estimates of the cloud frequency of occurrence and associated cloud radiative forcing as derived from ground-based and satellite active remote sensing and ra-diative transfer calculations can be reconciled over a well-instrumented active remote sensing site located in Darwin, Australia, despite the very… (More)
A method for producing synthetic debris similar to the melt glass produced by nuclear surface testing is demonstrated. Melt glass from the first nuclear weapon test (commonly referred to as trinitite) is used as the benchmark for this study. These surrogates can be used to simulate a variety of scenarios and will serve as a tool for developing and… (More)
– The Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR) is developing the Australian By comparing the observed cloud fields with forecasts, we are able to assess the model's predictive skill.
