Abstract: The Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus (DYCOMS-II) is the name given to a field campaign which proposes to collect data for the purposes of testing large-eddy simulations of nocturnal tratocumulus. DYCOMS-II is based on measurements taken from the NCAR EC-130Q in and around nocturnal marine stratocumulus. The experiment consists of 9 flights out of North ... Island Naval Air Station (just west of San Diego) between July 7 and July 28, 2001. Eight of these flights were nocturnal. This case study presents data from 7 July 2001 to 28 July 2001 and covers a region from 25N to 40N latitude and from 130W to 115W longitude.
The data for this experiment is under Working Group 1 (Boundary Layer Clouds) of the GEWEX Cloud System Study (GCSS) to improve physical parameterizations of clouds, other boundary layer processes, and their interactions.
