Stereo Photogrammetry of Clouds at the ARM Sites

This project aims to understand the behavior of warm, moist air using stereophotogrammetry (an estimate of the 3D coordinates of points on an object), instruments at Atmospheric Radiation Measurement sites, and turbulence simulations of observations. Stereo cameras are used to characterize the sizes, speeds, circulations, and ascent distances of individual convective bubbles through their life cycle. These data on cloud life cycles are difficult, if not impossible, to obtain with other ARM instruments.
