Abstract: The University of North Dakota (UND) Cessna Citation aircraft, an in-situ platform for the MC3E campaign, carried a suite of instruments for measurements of cloud microphysics, state of the atmosphere parameters, aerosols, three-dimensional winds and turbulence. The Citation flew 15 data missions, which totaled 42.6 flight hours. The data are stored as a separate file for each flight, with a primary (*.mc3e) file containing both direct and derived parameters. Raw data files for each cloud instrument are also archived to allow investigators who wish to use their own processing software. Particle size spectra for the imaging probes were processed by NCAR and are archived and distributed as a separate dataset (Particle probes).
