1The workshop was held at the NCAR in Boulder, Colorado, from 27 to 29 November 2012. There were over 120 participants who represented six countries (United States including Hawaii, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and Taiwan) and three continents. Additional participants attended by web conferencing. More information about the workshop including presentations and posters may be found online (at www.joss.ucar.edu/nsf_radar_wksp_nov12/).
2Spaceborne radars, which would require collaboration among NASA, NOAA, and NSF, were not considered during the workshop.
