Development of radar equipment and subsequent deployment to study the small scale structure of severe weather. Recent emphasis has been on hazards from sub tropical cyclones and orographic effects on rainfall. We have also been adapting the MM5 model to work on the atmosphere of Mars with a view to understanding the evolution of the climate of the rocky planets.
