Abstract

In situ atmospheric measurements using the SAFIRE ATR42 Core Instrument suite onboard the ATR42 - SAFIRE aircraft for the WaLiTemp- Inter-comparison of airborne and ground-based lidar measurements for the characterization of atmospheric water vapour and temperature profiles (WALITEMP) project (flight reference: as38).

Data were collected over the Montpellier, France. Mediterranean Basin area.
