Studies on the microphysics and radiation properties of clouds
February to March 2011, 55 flight hours, based in Exeter, UK
Aircraft: FAAM- BAE - 146 ( http://www.faam.ac.uk/ )
Max. altitude: 9200 m
Length: 31.0 m
Height: 8.6 m
Wingspan: 26.3 m
Range: 2400 km
Objective: Aircraft measurements to examine the links between
aerosol particles and the development of drizzling stratus (water) clouds
and mixed clouds (water and ice).
The aircraft measurements are coordinated with
ground measurements at different stations.
Forschungszentrum Jülich’s contribution to COALESC:
Measurement of the size distribution of cloud particles (water droplets and ice)
with the particle spectrometer NIXE-CAPS.
