Abstract:

WE PROPOSE A MULTI-CHANNEL MILLIMETER-WAVE RADIOMETER FOR MEASURING ATMOSPHERIC TEMPERATURE PROFILES AND INVERSIONS WITHOUT RESORT TO RADIOSONDE OBSERVATION. THE DEVICE WILL UTILIZE MULTIPLE PASSIVE CHANNELS AT 23,31, AND 50-60 GHZ. THIS RADIOMETER DEVELOPMENT TO MEASURE ATMOSPHERIC TEMPERATURE IS A LOGICAL EXTENSION OF OUR ALREADY EXISTING AND COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE 23/31 GHZWATER VAPOR RADIOMETER. THE PROPOSED DEVICE WILL CONTINUOUSLY MEASURE WATER VAPOR, CLOUD LIQUID WATER AND TEMPERATURE STRUCTURE IN THE ATMOSPHERE FROM A LIGHT-WEIGHT PORTABLE PLATFORM.
