Abstract:
FIRE Marine Stratus took place from 30 June through 19 July 1987 off the southwest coast of California . The experiment area extended from about 25N to 50N latitude and from 115W to 160W 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.
