ISMAR/HAMP Workshop 2016
Background and Scope
ISMAR and HAMP are two exciting new mm/submm airborne radiometers for humidity, cloud, and precipitation research. The instruments operate at different frequencies, but many aspects of the retrieval algorithms and of the science for which the instruments are intended are shared.
- Instrument status, calibration, data availability
- Retrieval algorithms and simulation results
- First campaign results
Conveners: Felix Ament, Catherine Prigent, Patrick Eriksson, Chawn Harlow, Bjorn Stevens, Tobias Wehr, Susanne Crewell, Stefan Buehler
Date and Place
The workshop was held on June 7-8, 2016 at the Meteorological Institute of the University of Hamburg.
