Abstract

Remote sensing instrumentation has long been used to provide insight into the atmospheric boundary layer. Wind profiler radars can provide much information about tropospheric wind fields and also turbulence. Synergetic use of the 915 MHz wind profiler and radiometer data from Camborne has been made in the presence of ducting conditions to obtain refractivity and humidity profiles. These profiles compare well with those retrieved from radiosonde data analysis.
