In preparation for EUREC4A, which should start three years from today, Sandrine and I were thinking that it might be good to imagine us doing the experiment at this time. One idea is that we send/collect one radar image (the daily summary) from the BCO, perhaps a MODIS or MeteoSat image and the sounding for each day for the next four weeks.

 

 
But to celebrate the first day of the first pre-EUREC4A experiment for now you will have to do with the radar summary. What is nice is the very familiar trade wind structure with shallow clouds punctuated by shallow mesoscale systems and precipitation penetrating only to 2-3 km but with significant echoes and substantial stratiform components.
