Feasibility of using an east coast facility for collaborative research in atmospheric science

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This feasibility study examined the effectiveness and potential of a center for collaborative research in atmospheric science and remote sensing. Strongly related to this effort was the development of a telescope facility by Howard University into an atmospheric observatory and remote sensor test-bed. Several remote sensing techniques were evaluated here and the most promising were further developed. Atmospheric assessment concentrated on aerosols, winds, constituent analysis, and the detection of hazardous agents including biologicals. This mission defined the suite of instrumentation. Being a feasibility study, the scope of the project was limited to examining the state of the technology and pushing ... continued below

Description

This feasibility study examined the effectiveness and potential of a center for collaborative research in atmospheric science and remote sensing. Strongly related to this effort was the development of a telescope facility by Howard University into an atmospheric observatory and remote sensor test-bed. Several remote sensing techniques were evaluated here and the most promising were further developed. Atmospheric assessment concentrated on aerosols, winds, constituent analysis, and the detection of hazardous agents including biologicals. This mission defined the suite of instrumentation. Being a feasibility study, the scope of the project was limited to examining the state of the technology and pushing it when possible. Research performed in applying laser technology lead to the development and subsequent patent application of a new laser heterodyne amplifier, progress toward the development of a laser probe to determine the range resolved size distribution of aerosols, and studies which may lead to the development of a laser induced fluorescence sensing technique for biologicals in the atmosphere. Research in passive atmospheric sensing helped to motivate a field experiment to better understand atmospheric radiance and radiation transport in three-dimensions.
