MAPNet - Mobile Atmospheric Profiling Network
MAPNet is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded requestable facility that is part of the Community Instrument and Facility (CIF) suite. MAPNet is designed to provide measurements of wind, thermodynamics, cloudbase/aerosol, and precipitation profiles within the boundary layer to middle troposphere in all weather conditions. Three profiling platforms and one scanning X-band radar are available for use. In the past, MAPNet facilities have been used to study topics from severe thunderstorms, winter weather, hurricanes, and air quality studies.
