Radar Propogation – Navy Dahlgren

WeatherFlow’s operational mesoscale model, WRAMS, is an emerging tool in research efforts at the Navy’s Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren Virginia. Researchers performing work on anomalous radar propagation have found a strong correlation between false radar echoes and layers of moisture trapped in layers of the lower boundary layer. These layers a prevalent during sea breeze circulations of which the WRAMS model is particularly well suited to predict. Encouraging results may allow operational radar operators know when to expect these false returns, thus improving critical interpretations during missions.
