The aim of the work is to design and develop light (less then 20 gr), expend-able radioprobes to study complex micro-physical and chemical processes inside warm clouds. This includes the tracking of turbulent, both saturated and unsaturated, air parcels. With this new kind of radiosonde, we thus aim to obtain Lagrangian statistics of the intense turbulence inside warm clouds and of the lower intensity turbulence typical of the air surrounding them. The radiosonde is made of the radioprobe (the… 

Innovative Mini Ultralight Radioprobes to Track Lagrangian Turbulence Fluctuations within Warm Clouds: Electronic Design

The tests confirm that the newly developed probes perform well, providing accurate information about atmospheric turbulence as referenced in space, and the integration of multiple radioprobes allows for a systematic and accurate monitoring of atmospheric turbulence and its impact on cloud formation.

Estimation of Turbulence Parameters Using ARIES ST Radar and GPS Radiosonde Measurements: First Results From the Central Himalayan Region

Turbulence in the atmosphere plays a vital role in controlling the surface, lower and upper tropospheric dynamics. Here, we have utilized a newly installed Aryabhatta Research Institute of

Development and Deployment of Air-Launched Drifters from Small UAS

In characterization tests performed at the 2018 International Society for Atmospheric Research using Remotely piloted Aircraft (ISARRA) flight week, it was found that the ALD sensor system performs reasonably well against industry standards, however, improvements will be made to increase the aspiration of the sensor.

Turbulence characteristics over tropical station Gadanki (13.5°N, 79.2°E) estimated using high-resolution GPS radiosonde data

Aboveground Thermodynamic Observations in Convective Storms from Balloonborne Probes Acting as Pseudo-Lagrangian Drifters

AbstractThe severe storms research community lacks reliable, aboveground, thermodynamic observations (e.g., temperature, humidity, and pressure) in convective storms. These missing observations are

Feasibility Analysis of a LoRa-Based WSN Using Public Transport

A feasibility analysis of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) to collect information from the vehicles conveying it to a central node for processing based on the LoRa technology is presented.

Clouds in Convection‐Resolving Climate Simulations Over Europe

Although crucial for the Earth's climate, clouds are poorly represented in current climate models, which operate at too coarse grid resolutions and rely on convection parameterizations. Thanks to
