  • Rhine Valley SupersiteWater treatment facility (Klranlage) Archern4838 N, 803 E, elev 140 mCommunity facility run by the local government,

  • The site is at approx. 10.5 km from the supersite at Hornisgrinde, where the UHOH scanning DIAL and R Raman lidar systems are located (these instruments having an horizonal coverage of approx. 20 km). Thus, the limited distance between these two sites will allow intercomparisons of Rhine site intrumentation with the UHOH DIAL and Raman lidars.

  • 200 m120 m

  • University of Salford Doppler lidar: Mobile laboratory 4.7 m long and 3 m high, 3.2 kVA, autonomous operation, no personnel on site except for installation, LAN/Internet connection with 1 IP addresses, speed 250kbits/s, no real-time analysed data.

    University of Manchester Radio Wind Profiler: 10 x 10 m antenna, power = 3.5 KVA (2x standard 13A plugs, autonomous operation, no personnel on site except for installation, LAN/Internet connection with 2 fixed IP addresses (speed around 250 kbits per sec ) in order to pcanywhere into the site, no real-time analysed data.

    University of Salford 14 Channel Microwave Radiometer: Dimensions: 950 mm length x 360 mm width x 630 mm height 3.2 kVA (240 V), autonomous operation, no personnel on site, LAN/Internet connection, no real-time analysed data.

    University of Basilicata Raman lidar: Sea-tainer, 6.00 x 2.30 x 3.19 (height), power = 6 kVA (220 V), running water, LAN/Internet connection with 2 IP addresses.

    University of Hamburg cloud radar: 2 kVA (230 V), LAN/Internet connection, real-time analysed data, no personnel on site except for installation, no assistance needed onsite.

    University of Hamburg rain radar:2 kVA, LAN/Internet connection, real-time analysed data, no personnel on site except for installation, no assistance needed onsite.

    GFZ Potsdam GPS: 0.1 kVA (230 V), slow internet connection, need for indoor space to locate a computer.

    ARM radiometer: 0.1kVA (220 V), little water only for dome cleaning, need for indoor space to locate a computer, no personnel on site, assistance needed onsite for dome cleaning, LAN/Internet connection with 2 IP addresses.

    University of Bonn Polarimetric MW Radiometer: 0.3kVA (220 V), need for indoor space to locate a computer, no personnel on site, LAN/Internet connection with 1 IP address.

    UK Radiosonde system: ? UK Sodar: ?

  • ADSL Internet connection with 10 fixed IP addresses (speed 250 kbits/sec) OVERALL ELECTRICITY REQUIREMENTS

    Power= 20 kW

    distributed over 8 x16 A single phase plugs1 x 32 A triphase plugs

    This is already avaialable at the stationWe need to implement:

    power distributors current meters

    Hans Mnster from University of Hamburg is taking care of itOVERALL INTERNET REQUIREMENTSOVERALL RUNNING WATER REQUIREMENTSHans Mnster from University of Hamburg is taking care of it5 l/min (already available, but we need to implement pressure reducers)

  • PRESENT DEPLOYMENT STATUSAll British instruments will be shipped on June 11 and will become operational by June 15.University of Hamburg cloud and rain radars shipped and installed on March 26.University of Basilicata Raman Lidar shipped on March 20. ARM radiometer and GFZ Potsdam GPS to be installed within the next month Polarimetric MW Radiometer Universitt Bonn - ADMIRARI will be installed at the end of May

  • Main facility with:

    3 bathrooms inside 1 lounge room with coffee machine

  • Radiosonde Station

    Provided by Geraint Vaughan/Steve Mobbs

    Installed on a laptop. The base station comes with a portable antenna. The system receives GPS from sondes.

    Total power requirement small (0.3 kW). RS80 sondes avaialble, balloons, parachutes and helium gas not avaialable.

    Gas regulator avaialble, but it is best get the regulator from a German group because a British one might not fit German gas bottles).

    UK groups have no funding to provide people to prepare and launch sondes. Personnel of Univ. of Basilicata avaialble for launches up to twice per day.

  • University of Salford MW Radiometer25 litres of liquid nitrogen for initial calibration.

    Local delivery point for Liquid nitrogen to be located.

  • University of Basilicata Raman Lidar - BASILSeveral new channels have been introduced based on the cooperation with the University of Rome La Sapienza. Present measurement capability: particle backscatter at 355, 532 nm and 1064 nm particle extinction at 355 and 532 nm particle depolarization at 355 and 532 nm water vapour mixing ratio atmospheric temperature relative humidity lidar ratio at 355 nm
