An integrated tool that consists of a volume scanning high-resolution Raman water vapor LIDAR and a turbulence-resolving hydrodynamic model, called HIGRAD, is used to support the semi-arid land-surface–atmosphere (SALSA) program. The water vapor measurements collected during SALSA have been simulated by the HIGRAD code with a resolution comparable with that of the LIDAR data. The LIDAR provides the required “ground truth” of coherent water vapor eddies and the model allows for interpretation of… CONTINUE READING
