Project SCOUT Team Returns...
Top Photo (above) of one of WiSE's two Ka-band mobile Doppler pulse compression radar trucks that played an integral role during Project SCOUT (Severe Convective OUtflow in Thunderstorms). The two TTUKa radar trucks and 24 StickNets were deployed to measure turbulent characteristics of the near-surface wind field in convective outflow from both supercells and mesoscale convective systems.
