Deep convective cloud top heights and their thermodynamic control during CRYSTAL-FACE

Abstract

Infrared (11 m) radiances from GOES-8 and local radiosonde profiles, collected during the Cirrus Regional Study of Tropical Anvils and Cirrus LayersFlorida Area Cirrus Experiment (CRYSTAL-FACE) in July 2002, are used to assess the vertical distribution of Florida-area deep convective cloud top height and test predictions as to its variation based on parcel… (More)
