The Fronts 92 field experiment took place in the Eastern North
Atlantic with the objective to study the dynamics of frontal systems
in the region. The data presented here are from the third Intensive
Observation Period (IOP). During this period a rapidly developing cold
frontal wave crossed the field experiment area. This case ... study
presents data from 27 April 1992 to 28 April 1992 and covers a region
from 30N to 60N latitude and from 50W to 10E longitude.
The data for this experiment is under Working Group 3 (Extratropical
Layer Cloud Systems) of the GEWEX Cloud System Study (GCSS) to improve
physical parameterizations of clouds, other boundary layer processes,
and their interactions.
