About

The University of Oklahoma group for Boundary Layer Integrated Sensing and Simulation (OU-BLISS) is a team of faculty and researchers with an interest in multi-faceted studies of the boundary layer. Through a variety of instrumentation and simulations, we seek to understand the dynamic nature of the lowest level of the atmosphere.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions!

The BLISS Doppler Lidar is currently deployed at the National Weather Center as part of the CLAMPS platform. Data plots coming soon!
