CREST Faculty wins DURIP Award

Peter Romanov (NOAA CREST Senior Research Scientist) and Tarendra Lakhankar (NOAA CREST Research Assistant Professor) received a Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) award from the Department of Defense to purchase a CIMEL Sun-photometer operated in (0.6 – 1.2 µm) wavelengths in the VIS/IR band and a 10.65 and 19 GHz dual polarized microwave radiometer. DURIP is designed to improve the capabilities of U.S. universities to conduct research and to educate scientists and engineers in areas important to national defense by providing funds for the acquisition of research equipment. The addition of these new instruments will expand the research capacity of the CREST-SnowAnalysis andFieldExperiment (CREST-SAFE). CREST-SAFE is located near the National Weather Service office in Caribou, ME, and works to develop, improve and validate snow retrieval algorithms.
