The CSU-CHILL National Weather Radar Facility, located in Greeley, CO, is an advanced, transportable dual-polarized S-band weather radar system. The facility is operated by Colorado State University, under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation and the University.
X-band reflectivity data collected as a fine line echo approached a small thunderstorm on 30 August 2013. Time lapse animations captured a brief intensification of the storm due to the enhanced low-level convergence along the fine line echo.
S-band (3 GHZ) reflectivity data in an RHI scan through a dissipating, non-severe thunderstorm. Data collection took place on 30 June 2013 during the CHILL Microphysical Investigation of Electrification (CHILL MIE) 20 hr project.
