Description

An evening lecture on an "Introduction to Clouds"

The Natural Environment Research (NERC) MST Radar Facility at Aberystwyth is  an atmospheric science field station. It operates a variety of instruments  including the Mesosphere-Stratosphere-Troposphere (MST) Radar, which measures  the wind. This instrument is large (its antenna array covers an area of 100 m squared) and highly-specialised (it is the only one of its kind in the UK). By  contrast, the Facility's Sky-Camera is an inexpensive, general-purpose  web-cam. It captures an image of sky conditions every minute. These images  have proved to be surprisingly useful when viewed as time-lapse  animations. This can reveal details that are not obvious in individual  images. This talk will use sky-camera images and sequences to illustrate the  significance of some particular cloud types.
 
This event is aimed at members of all grades and their guests. Due to the location it is essential that you book a free ticket in advance.
 
Arrive 18:00 for a 18:30 start (to manage reception). Photographic ID will be required. The lecture is scheduled to run from 18:30-19:30 and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
