The Meteorological Research Flight (MRF) was a Met Office facility, which flew a well-instrumented C-130 Hercules aircraft for atmospheric research purposes.
This dataset contains airborne atmospheric and chemistry measurements taken on board the Met Office C-130 Hercules aircraft flight A692 for the Small cumulus project. The main objective was to study the micro-physical and radiative properties of small cumuls clouds and the influence of aerosol on coud micro-physics. The location of the flight was over East Anglia, Linconshire, Salisbury plain.
