During the Radiative Heating in Underexplored Bands Campaign (RHUBC), held in February-March 2007, three millimeter-wave radiometers were operated at the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program's site in Barrow, Alaska. These radiometers contain several channels located around the strong 183.31-GHz water vapor line, which is crucial for ground-based water-vapor measurements in very dry conditions, typical of the Arctic. Simultaneous radiosonde observations were carried out during conditions… CONTINUE READING
