UND Doppler Weather Radar
UND operates a dual-polarization Doppler weather radar (NorthPol) for educational and research purposes. The radar system is used to track severe weather events in eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota. The Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere (ATSC 345) and Radar Meteorology (ATSC 441) courses cover and discuss the principles of radar remote sensing and interpretation of radar data. You can learn how to run the UND NorthPol radar as part of these classes.
