    History of LWE and Check Time System Deployment

    2003-2011- Test LWE and Check Time system deployed at Denver International Airport at the United Ice House.

    2006 2009Test LWE and Check Time system deployed at Pittsburgh

    2007-2011Test snow and freezing precipitation LWE system deployed at Chicago

    2007 2009Test LWE system deployed at Minneapolis/St. Paul airport

    2010-2011 Test LWE and Check Time system at Cleveland airport

    MotivationNeed to replace visibility tables for determination of snowfall intensity with a direct determination of snow intensity by Liquid Water Equivalent (LWE)

    FAA funded NCAR to develop a standalone LWE system to show proof of conceptSnow, FZRA, FZDZ, IP, Frost

    The poor relationship between visibility and snowfall intensitymotivated the FAA torequest NCAR to developa Liquid Water Equivalent (LWE)system and Check Time systemusing real-time snowgauges LWE System displayGEONORsnowgaugeHotplatesnowgaugeNCAR LWE ResearchNext steps: FAA develop Advisory Circular to enable commercial vendors to make the system available to airlines/airports
