Abstract : Two new remote sensors, the NELC-developed FM-CW radar and Stanford Research Institute's laser radar, were operated simultaneously from 30 Nov 1971 to 14 January 1972 to establish their capabilities and limitations. Nine days of data were obtained by recording techniques which produced records having the same time and height scales. (Author)
