Welcome from the Interim DirectorWelcome to the Advanced Radar Research Center at the University of Oklahoma! The ARRC consists of a vibrant group of faculty and students from both engineering and meteorology, focused on solving challenging radar problems and preparing the next generation of students. Through the collaborative nature instilled in its members, the ARRC has proven effective at developing synergy between science and engineering in the field of radar. In the National Weather Center and in its extensive laboratory and radar facilities, meteorology and engineering faculty and students work side-by-side to learn from each other and to tackle tough problems in remote sensing, microwave engineering, and applied electromagnetics. This interdisciplinary esprit de corps has already had a profound effect on both the undergraduate and graduate educational experiences in radar provided to OU students. -- Tian Yu
