near the wingtips of the aircraft allow signals to be received during aircraft turns when the large wing would result in shadowing of the two belly antennas and receivers. The HDSS also carries two cameras to record dropsonde ejection: one aft of the drop tubes facing forward and one forward of the drop tubes facing aft. These cameras also were used to document cloud structures ahead of and behind the aircraft ( Fig. 16 ). The mission monitor display for the WB-57 was used to maintain situational

; Rosenkranz and Staelin 1972 ). Since the increase in foam is correlated with surface wind speed ( Ross and Cardone 1974 ; Webster et al. 1976 ; Swift et al. 1984 ; Tanner et al. 1987 ), emissivity increases with surface wind speed. The sensitivity to wind speed is greatest at hurricane force (>33 m s −1 ) and is therefore particularly useful for measuring the strongest winds. The four C-band channels also have varying sensitivity to rain, so rain rate and wind speed can be retrieved simultaneously
