Abstract

An extensive cloud radar dataset was collected during a 2 month period in the Fall of 1994 on the campus of Penn State University. The radar dataset were compared with hourly mesoscale model output so that the observations could be placed within a meteorological context. The fundamental cirrus cloud statistics confirm previous findings that used more conventional forms of cloud observation.
