Abstract : This is a report of a pilot experiment, which took place at the AFGL site in Sudbury, MA. This experiment was concerned with the testing and operation of a 94 GHz radar to be used in a project devoted to the study of stratiform rain characteristics and evolution. Some of the data collected during the test are presented. The main experiment involving several radars operating at different wavelengths is scheduled to take place in November 1987 at the same site.
