Abstract : The student supported by this grant participated in radar experiments in Greenland using the large power 1290-MHz radar and a 2-MHz partial reflections interferometer system. He has also participated in experiments in Japan using the 53.5-MHz MU radar located near Kyoto for interferometric radar observations of waves and turbulence. In addition, the student has been involved in the operation of the portable Clemson University 1290-MHz boundary layer radar interferometer system in Japan and the development of a 49.92-MHz interferometric radar system at Clemson.
