Evaluation of Several A-Train Ice Cloud Retrieval Products with in Situ Measurements Collected During the SPARTICUS Campaign
In this study several ice cloud retrieval products that utilize active and passive A-Train measurements are evaluated using in situ data collected during the Small Particles in Cirrus (SPARTICUS) field campaign. The retrieval datasets include ice water content (IWC), effective radius re, and visible extinction σ from CloudSat level-2C ice cloud property product (2C-ICE), CloudSat level-2B radar-visible optical depth cloud water content product (2B-CWC-RVOD), radar-lidar(DARDAR), and σ from Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO). When the discrepancies between ...

Assessing the impacts of cloud condensation nuclei on cumulus congestus clouds using a cloud resolving model Author(s):Sheffield, Amanda M.Date Issued:2011Format:born digital; masters thesesCumulus congestus clouds are mid-level clouds that form part of the trimodal tropical cloud distribution. They act to moisten the atmosphere and may become mixed-phase in their lifetime. Congestus typically surpass the ...
