Summary
Abstract: SCAR_B_UWC131A data are Smoke/Sulfates, Clouds and Radiation Experiment in Brazil data from instruments on board the University of Washington C131A aircraft in Native format.

Smoke/Sulfates, Clouds and Radiation - Brazil (SCAR-B) data include physical and chemical components of the Earth's surface, the atmosphere and the radiation field collected in Brazil with an emphasis in biomass burning.

The objectives for the SCAR mission are: to advance our knowledge of how the physical, chemical and radiative processes in our atmosphere are affected by sulfate aerosol and smoke from biomass burning; to improve our expertise at remotely sensing smoke, water vapor, clouds, vegetation and fires; and to assess the effects of deforestation and biomass burning on tropical landscapes.

From 17 August to 20 September 1995, the University of Washington's (UW) Cloud and Aerosol Research Group, with its Convair C-131A research aircraft, participated in an intensive field study of smoke emissions from various types of biomass burning over a large area of Brazil. This included 29 flights to collect measurements and photographs.
