First ISCCP Regional Experiment (FIRE) Cirrus Phase II NCAR Sabreliner Aircraft 2D Probe Data
Entry ID: FIRE_CI2_SABRLNR_2D

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The First ISCCP Regional Experiments have been designed to improve data products and cloud/radiation parameterizations used in general circulation models (GCMs). Specifically, the goals of FIRE are (1) to seek the basic understanding of the interaction of physical processes in determining life cycles of cirrus and marine stratocumulus systems and the radiative properties of these clouds during ...
