Ship-Based Measurements of Cloud Optical Properties During the Atlantic Stratocumulus Transition Experiment

Abstract

The Atlantic Stratocumulus Transition Experiment (ASTEX), conducted in June 1992, was designed with the broad goal of improving the dynamical, radiative, and microphysical models of marine boundary layer (MBL) clouds. This goal was pursued by combining measurements from a number of different platforms including aircraft, satellites, ships, and islands (for more information on ASTEX operations, see Bluth and Albrecht [1992]).
