Quick Ceilometer Facts

  1. It’s pronounced “see-lo-meter”. My Nouveau Joisey accent tends to put anywhere from 2 to 4 extra syllables between the see, the lo and the meter. Just ignore that.

  2. The ceilometer is identical in principle to a lidar. Here is a quick lidar tutorial.

  3. We will be collaborating with the Remote Sensing Group at MeteoSwiss to do some way cool studies with chains of these instruments. More later.

  4. It looks like a “plucky droid”. I like that.
