Tyler Bell

Research Scientist

Tylerís research revolves around increasing the number and quality of observations in the atmospheric boundary layer through innovative sensing techniques. I work to both improve existing techniques as well as develop new methods for probing the lower atmosphere. Currently, Tyler is working to characterize and improve physics-based thermodynamic retrievals from microwave radiometers (MWR) and the Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (AERI), which are part of the Collaborative Lower Atmospheric Mobile Profiling System (CLAMPS). Additionally, Tyler is actively pursuing his PhD in collaboration with the OU Center for Autonomous Sensing and Sampling. Tyler is assisting in the development and characterization of a weather-sensing uncrewed aerial system (WxUAS) for probing the boundary layer. The ultimate goal is to deploy these types of systems into a national network. Finding the optimal network configuration for such a network is an active area of research at CIWRO. Observations from both WxUAS and ground-based remote sensors such as those in CLAMPS will be critically important to advance our understanding of the atmosphere and ultimately to improve weather and climate forecasts.
