Summary
Abstract: The EUCREX-93 case study presents data from 10 Sep 1993 to 15 Oct 1993
and covers a region from 50N to 65N latitude and from 20W to 5E
longitude.

The data for this experiment is under Working Group 2 (Cloud Systems
Studies) of the GEWEX Cloud System Study (GCSS) to improve physical
parameterizations of clouds, other boundary layer processes, and their
interactions.
