Cirrus Coupled Cloud-Radiation Experiment: CIRCCREX

Project: Research

Project Details


The main objective can be summarised as follows:
To better understand the relationship between cirrus microphysical properties; the crystal
size and habit distributions to the radiative signature throughout the infrared and visible
spectrum from 0.3-125 microns, including the less-explored far-IR region (16-125 microns);
thus validate current cirrus scattering models and parameterisation schemes to produce a self-consistent and physically-based parameterisation of the ice crystal scattering properties applicable to GCMs and satellite remote sensing applications.
