The Panel on Cloud Microphysics and Radar met at the 40th Anniversary Radar Meteorology Conference in Boston to consider the review paper by Jameson and Johnson (Chapter 23a) and provide feedback to the authors. The panel also discussed the present and potential uses of radar in cloud physics measurements, and agreed that improvements are clearly needed in instrument systems, not just radar, in order to bridge the current gap in scales between radar and in situ measurements. Research areas best suited for cloud physics measurements by radar with enhanced capabilities were identified. This report considers these topics while emphasizing the future direction of radar studies to help resolve some of the major unsolved problems in cloud physics.
