EQUIPMENT

Primary Data: The atmospheric physics laboratory does not operate a radar or other equipment. Our primary data is from the Equatorial Atmosphere Radar (EAR) at Kototabang. This field site is a collaboration between LAPAN, RISH-Kyoto University and other institutions. With the collocation of EAR and a large variety of ground based and remote sensing equipment makes this an exciting location.

 

Other Data: For global atmospheric observation, we take the advantage of the following data: Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) – NASA, Multi-functional Transport Satellite (MTSAT) of Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), The Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), and others.
