Already more than one month, our meteorological radar TARA is placed in Southern France to support the measurement of the Mediterrainean hydrological cycle in the frame of the HYMEX campaign (HYdrological cycle in the Mediterranean EXperiment).

TARA radar close to Montpellier (France)

We already collected quite some data of clouds and precipitation (quicklooks of the data collected are available here).
Today we are happy to add also a radar measurement of fog. This is quite a rare occasion, because the radiation fog that we have in Cabauw (Netherlands) is usually a much thinner layer, and too close to TARA to be measured. Instead the advection fog we are currently observing in France reaches up to heights of about 500m.
