Summary
Abstract: The ARM Enhanced Shortwave Experiment (ARESE) was conducted at the Department of Energy's ARM Southern Great Plains (SGP) Central Facility between September 22, 1995 and November 1, 1995. ARESE used a combination of satellite, aircraft, and ground observations to make highly accurate solar flux measurements at different altitudes throughout the atmospheric column. At the heart of this was a carefully "stacked" Twin Otter and Egrett "cloud sandwich" with the Otter at 1500 - 5000 feet and the Egrett at 43,000 feet overflown by an ER-2 flying at 65,000 feet.

Purpose: The principal objectives of ARESE were (1) to directly measure the absorption of solar radiation by the clear and cloudy atmosphere and to place uncertainty bounds on these measurements; and (2) to investigate the possible causes of absorption in excess of model predictions.
