Title:Thermodynamic Profiling Technologies Workshop report to the National Science Foundation and the National Weather Service
Abstract: The Thermodynamic Profiling Technologies Workshop was convened on 12-14 April 2011 to assess the merits of ground-based remote sensing technologies applicable to highly resolved observations and analyses of temperature and moisture in the lower troposphere over land. Such observations are central to some of the most important research and operational goals in atmospheric and Earth system studies, mesoscale numerical weather prediction, and monitoring of regional climate variability. The Workshop was also motivated by the recommendations of the NRC study Observing Weather and Climate from the Ground Up; A Nationwide Network of Networks (2009, available at http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=12540), several of which dealt with observational priorities in the low troposphere. The principal investigators on this project were Rit E. Carbone and Robert J. Serafin.
