FIRE II Cirrus Model Forcing and Data for the GEWEX Cloud System Study Data Integration for Model Evaluation (GCSS-DIME)

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: FIRE II Cirrus took place from 13 November through 7 December 1991 in
the central USA, centered on Kansas. The experiment area extended from
about 20N to 50N latitude and from 75W to 125W longitude. This case
study presents data from 13 Nov 1991 to 7 Dec 1991 and covers a region
from 20N to 50N latitude and from 125W to 75W 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
