The response of honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) drones to queen pheromone(s) (either natural from a mated queen, or synthetic from a lure) was recorded using an X-band, ground-based radar. The distribution of drones (insect targets on the radar screen) changed from a scattered distribution to a line concentration (downwind) when the pheromone was released.… (More)
A high-resolution radar sounder has been used in the simultaneous detection of atmospheric structure and insects. The vertical distribution of insects was often correlated with atmospheric structure. Continuous recordings revealed diurnal fluctuations and layering of insects at various altitudes.
Environmental Data Record (EDR) algorithm (Version 1.5) were evaluated with matched European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) data and other correlative data sets. Proxy radiances derived for the CrIS/ATMS instruments were used with the NGAS-CrIMSS EDR algorithm to retrieve temperature and water vapor profiles. Comparison of the CrIS/ATMS… (More)
Corn earworm (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) (CEW) populations infesting one crop production area may rapidly migrate and infest distant crop production areas. Although entomological radars have detected corn earworm moth migrations, the spatial extent of the radar coverage has been limited to a small horizontal view above crop production areas. The Weather… (More)
set of atmospheric data from the tropical Atlantic Ocean, sampling a broad range of important regional meteorological phenomena. T he tropical Atlantic Ocean is a region of significant meteorological and oceanographic interest in terms of atmospheric chemistry and mesoscale-to-synoptic dynamical and thermody-namical processes. Nonmaritime air masses from… (More)
