Abstract: FIRE I Cirrus took place from 13 October through 2 December 1986 in the upper midwest USA centered on Madison, Wisconsin. The experiment area extended from about 30N to 55N latitude and from 80W to 125W longitude. This case study presents data from 13 Oct 1986 to 2 Nov 1986 and covers a region from 30N to 55N latitude and from 125W to 80W 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 interactions. http://gcss-dime.giss.nasa.gov/
