Department Radar Remote Sensing

The focus of the department "Radar Remote Sensing" lies on continuous observations of dynamical and thermal parameters of the troposphere and lower stratosphere as well as the mesosphere and lower thermosphere. Standard parameters to be determined are winds, wave parameters and turbulence in these regions, as well as mean temperaturesand mean neutral densities at an altitude of ~ 90km. These observations are performed using partly unique MF and VHF radar systems as well as meteor radars which are located at mid and polar latitudes. Such radar systems provide the only existing possibility suitable for the continuous observation of the above mentioned height region.
