NSSL is wrapping up a three-week project to provide the first ever simultaneous measurements of the vertical structures of microphysics, electrical charge, and electric fields in Florida storms.

NSSL is working on an experimental instrument train attached to a weather balloon that includes a radiosonde (temperature, relative humidity, wind, altitude), an electric field meter, and a PArticle Size, Image, and Velocity probe (PASIV). The PASIV has an HD camera and a disdrometer. New though, is a GoPro camera attached to the train above the radiosonde looking down as the balloon rises. Excerpts from the video coming soon!
