CSU partners in NSF-funded airborne radar designed by National Center for Atmospheric Research

Colorado State University researchers are partners in a project that could revolutionize our ability to observe, understand and ultimately predict high-impact weather events.  The National Science Foundation has awarded $91.8 million in funding for a next-generation airborne radar designed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and CSU will contribute to the radar’s research and development.  Atmospheric Science Professor Michael Bell is a co-investigator on this effort.  This work is described in more detail in a CSU Source article written by Jayme DeLoss, linked here.
