    A radio acoustic sounding system (RASS) is a system for measuring the atmospheric lapse rate using backscattering of radio waves from an acoustic wave front to measure the speed of sound at various heights above the ground. This is possible because the compression and rarefaction of air by an acoustic wave changes the dielectric properties, producing partial reflection of the transmitted radar.

INTRODUCTION The Earth Observing Laboratory of the National. A new lower-tropospheric MHz radar wind profiler (RWP) has been developed, which can be installed permanently (at a fixed site), or for portable use (on a trailer). The RAPTOR XBS-T uses Yagi antenna elements assembled and cabled at the factory so there is no assembly required for operation for mobile operations.

Abstract: This paper presents the design of a MHz radar for wind profiling, with a focus on modularity and solid-state transmitter design.

It is one of the first wind profiler radars to use low-cost Laterally Diffused Metal Oxide Semiconductor (LDMOS) power amplifiers (PAs) combined with spaced by: Cooperative Agency Profilers (CAP) is a cooperative venture between GSD (formerly 449-MHz profiler/RASS book and many participating agencies enabling GSD to; acquire profiler and RASS data in near real-time, apply GSD's data quality control algorithms, and make these value-added data available on the web and to the National Weather Service.

Using pulse coding and a μs transmitted pulse, the Bodega Bay MHz wind profiler achieved more than three times the maximum altitude coverage ( m vs. m above sea level)1 of the Bodega Bay MHz wind profiler using pulse coding and a μs pulse.

The MHz RASS at Goleta outperformed the MHz RASS at Goleta in maximum. RASS operating in conjunction with a MHz profiler was collected.

The MHz profilers are smaller and cheaper to build and operate, but they lack height coverage much above the boundary layer. A third type of profiler that operates at MHz (the so-called 1/4-scale MHz profilers) combines the best sampling attributes of the other two systems (Table 1, Fig.
