Lake-Induced Convection Experiment (Lake-ICE) Data at UCAR/JOSS/NOAA/CODIAC

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The Lake-Induced Convection Experiment (Lake-ICE) will document
boundary layer (BL) phenomena over and in the vicinity of Lake
Michigan to determine how BL processes are controlled by Mesoscale BL
convective structures and interactions between these structuresand
turbulent vertical transport processes throughout the depth of the
BL. The field phase of the program will be in two parts from 1-22
December 1997 and 5-24 January 1998. The simultaneous study of
mesoscale snowband structures (SNOWBAND Project) will seek to document
dynamical and microphysical of mesoscale precipitation bands
associated with cyclones moving through the project domain.
