Welcome to my “project page”. Everyone in the Atmospheric Lidar Research Group has a project page so that you can see what each of us are working on.

The Raman-shifted Eye-safe Aerosol Lidar (REAL) is my main project. I appreciate help from the team, NSF, and NCAR to maintain and improve it. The time-lapse animations of meteorological phenomena that you can find on this website were made by REAL. The instrument allows us to make two-dimensional cross-sectional images of the structure of the clear lower atmosphere through aerosol backscattering, and by animating a sequence of images we can observe beautiful fluid motions.

I invite you to take a look at our results (mouse over "Examples" above; some older animations require Quicktime) and team-member project pages. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
