Cloud radar action at Ny-Ålesund

Kerstin Ebell

This week Mario and myself traveled to Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard, to exchange our cloud radar MiRAC-A with the cloud radar JOYRAD94. Since MiRAC-A is needed for campaign preparations, it has to travel back to Germany. Swapping the instruments on the roof of the atmospheric observatory of AWIPEV ( went very smoothly.

Thanks also to the AWIPEV and Kingsbay support! What a wonderful place to do measurements!
