Abstract

Problems in atmospheric dynamics, in particular in micro- and mesoscale processes, which can be solved by radar investigations, are summarized. The method of atmospheric radar experiments is described. Some relevant results obtained with the new SOUSY-VHF-Radar are presented, including observations of a warm-front passage, of layered structures, and of vertical and horizontal velocities in the troposphere. A power profile of radar echoes from heights up to the stratosphere proves that the SOUSY-VHF-Radar in its final operating state will be able to investigate structures and dynamics in the mesosphere too.
