Meteorological radar is an essential tool for research, diagnosis, and nowcasting of clouds and precipitation. Cloud radars use short wavelengths to enable detection of small ice particles or cloud droplets. The cloud radar at UFS Schneefernerhaus is operated since end of 2011. It has been used for a number of studies related to clouds and precipitation. In a synergistic combination with additional remote sensing instruments, a large variety of cloud and precipitation properties can be retrieved. The measurements at UFS Schneefernerhaus can be used for the evaluation of numerical weather prediction models and satellite measurements. The long-term observations allow assessing the seasonal and long-term evolution of cloud properties above the UFS in a warming climate.
