Abstract: This data set consists of data collected during the GRIP campaign from three probes: the Cloud, Aerosol, and Precipitation Spectrometer (CAPS), the Precipitation Imaging Probe (PIP), and the Cloud Droplet Probe (CDP). All are manufactured by Droplet Measurement Technologies in Boulder, CO. The CAPS is a combination of two probes, the Cloud Imaging Probe-Greyscale (CIP-G) and the Cloud and Aerosol Spectrometer (CAS). Images of particles are recorded by the CIP-G and PIP while the CAS probe measures particle size distribution from 0.55 to 52.5 microns. Some ice/liquid water content are derived from the particle size distribution. Data was collected 13 Aug 2010 through 25 Sep 2010.
