Cirrus and Anvils: European Satellite and Airborne Radiation measurements (CAESAR) Project Data from FAAM (Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements) and Chilbolton Observatory

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published

Abstract

The CAESAR project aimed to investigate the radiative properties of cirrus cloud over a wide range of wavelengths in combination with airborne in situ measurements of cirrus microphysical properties.

This dataset collection contains atmospheric measurements of vertical and horizontal distribution of ice crystal size, shape and ice water content and meteorology during summer and winter periods.

Data were obtained by Flights using the FAAM BAE-146 to observe frontal and anvil cirrus co-incident with the CloudSat Aqua-train and Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) satellites over the Chilbolton cloud radars and lidars as well as ocean/sea surrounding the UK. The winter FAAM campaign ran from 14 November 2005 17 December 2005 and the summer FAAM campaign ran from 3-17 May 2006.
