Altitude and Particle Size Measurements of Noctilucent Clouds by RGB Photometry: Radiative Transfer and Correlation Analysis

Noctilucent or polar mesospheric clouds have become visually brighter and occurred more frequently during the recent years and decades. The study of possible reasons and relations with climate

Gravity Wave Breaking and Vortex Ring Formation Observed by PMC Turbo

Polar mesospheric cloud (PMC) imaging and lidar profiling performed aboard the 5.9‐day PMC Turbo balloon flight from Sweden to northern Canada in July 2018 revealed a wide variety of gravity wave

Detection of Molecular Scattering Field from a Polarization Analysis of the Sky Background during Transitive Twilight and Temperature Measurements near the Stratopause

The simplest version of the method of detecting the single molecular scattering field based on the polarization measurements of the twilight sky background by all-sky cameras has been considered. The



On microphysical processes of noctilucent clouds (NLC): observations and modeling of mean and width of the particle size-distribution

Abstract. Noctilucent clouds (NLC) in the polar summer mesopause region have been observed in Norway (69° N, 16° E) between 1998 and 2009 by 3-color lidar technique. Assuming a mono-modal Gaussian

Scattering phase functions and particle sizes in noctilucent clouds

The MIDAS‐DROPPS campaign conducted in Norway in 1999 provided a comprehensive study of the high‐latitude summer mesopause region with rocket‐borne and ground‐based instrumentation. Optical

In situ measurements of the vertical structure of a noctilucent cloud

During the NLC‐93 rocket campaign at Esrange, Sweden, the vertical structure of a noctilucent cloud layer has been investigated in situ. As in earlier rocket flights, combinations of scattered light

Particle properties and water content of noctilucent clouds and their interannual variation

[1] Noctilucent clouds (NLC) have been observed by a multicolor lidar in northern Norway (69°N, 16°E). From three backscatter coefficients we calculate the parameters of a monomodal particle size

Latitudinal dependence of noctilucent cloud growth

The latitudinal variation of NLC particle sizes is studied using scattered solar radiation spectra from the OSIRIS instrument onboard the Odin satellite obtained during the austral summer period 1

Microphysical and optical properties of noctilucent clouds

Vertical variation of NLC particle sizes retrieved from Odin/OSIRIS limb scattering observations

The vertical variation of noctilucent cloud (NLC) particle sizes is derived from limb scattering observations in the UV‐B spectral range performed with the Optical Spectrograph and InfraRed Imager
