Sarna, K. (author)
This thesis presents a new method for the continuous observation of aerosol-cloud interactions with ground-based remote sensing instruments. The described method is based on the measurements from UV lidar, radar and radiometer. All of those instruments are capable of obtaining continuous, high-resolution measurements. In order to facilitate its...

Weather and climate influence life in many ways; varying climatic conditions can be associated with varying human cultures and on a day-to-day basis, the weather influences our plans and mood. As such, a proper prediction of the weather is of great importance. Ultimately, the weather is fueled by solar irradiation, which changes sharply over the...

van der Linden, S.J.A. (author)
Stable boundary layers (SBLs) are a common aspect of the earth’s atmosphere and are characterized by a stable density stratification in which the temperature increases with height. This typically occurs during the night, resulting in a short-lived stable boundary layer, or persistently throughout the polar winter, resulting in a longlived stable...

Mamali, D. (author)
Atmospheric aerosol particles are solid or liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere. They are directly emitted into the atmosphere or they are formed via the oxidation of gaseous precursors. Understanding the behavior of particles in the atmosphere is particularly important because they can affect the Earth’s climate, visibility, air quality...

Yin, J. (author)
Weather observation is becoming more important than ever because extreme weather, such as tropical cyclones, thunderstorms and heavy rain, is more common nowadays. To observe and forecast the atmospheric phenomena at high spatial and temporal resolution, weather radar is well recognized as an effective tool. The prerequisite of using weather...

Oude Nijhuis, A.C.P. (author)
Scanning radars are promising sensors for atmospheric remote sensing, giving potential to retrieve parameters that characterize the local air dynamics during rain. For the observation of air motion, radars are relying on the backscatter of particles, which can, for example, be raindrops or insects. To measure wind vectors and turbulence...

Reinoso Rondinel, R. (author)
Observations of weather phenomena have attracted many researchers because of their microphysical complexity, space-time variability, and more important, their impact on human life. In the efforts of studying weather, researchers have used a diverse number of instruments to obtain both in-situ (towers, tethered balloons, and weather station...

Pfitzenmaier, L. (author)
Clouds are a prominent part of the Earth hydrological cycle. In the mid latitudes, the ice phase of clouds is highly involved in the formation of precipitation. The ice particles in the clouds fall to earth either as snow flakes, in the winter month, or melting crystals that become rain drops. An efficient growth process is the interaction of...

Li, Y. (author)
As a significant phenomenon in meteorology, fog has attracted more and more concern from the scientific community, because of its impacts on visibility in air- and road-transportation. E.g., at airports, the frequency of aircrafts taking off and landing has to be reduced during heavy fogs, because in conditions of low visibility the pilots need...

Knist, C.L. (author)
Accurate ground-based remotely sensed microphysical and optical properties of liquid water clouds are essential references to validate satellite-observed cloud properties and to improve cloud parameterizations in weather and climate models. This requires the evaluation of algorithms for retrieval of cloud microphysical and optical properties...

Dufournet, Y. (author)
In the field of atmospheric research, ground-based radar systems are often employed to study ice/mixed-phase cloud properties based on retrieval techniques. These techniques convert the radar signal backscattered by each bulk of ice crystals being probed within the same radar resolution volume to cloud’s microphysical characteristics. However,...

Figueras i Ventura, J. (author)
The impact of the increase in anthropogenic aerosols on the global climate and the precipitation cycle is not yet fully understood. One of the reasons for that is the lack of sound measurements. In particular, high temporal and spatial resolution measurements of precipitation, coupled with measurements from other instruments, would be desired to...
