The NSF Division of Mesoscale Meteorology and the University of Nevada—Reno (UNR) provided support for a two-week field course at the CSU–CHILL radar during 12–24 May 1991. Ten atmospheric science graduate students and two faculty from the Desert Research Institute (University of Nevada) spent the two weeks at the Greeley, Colorado, site of the CSU–CHILL 11-cm dual-polarization Doppler radar. This article describes the purpose, design, facilities, and success of the radar meteorology field course.
