Ten coordinated aircraft flights were performed above the R/V Polarstern, while 13 occurred over the Ny-Alesund site, and 6 were carried out underneath the CloudSat/ Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) satellite tracks (Stephens et al.
(a) The 1000 UTC 9 Jul 2008 GOES fog product using band 4 (10.7 [micro]m) minus band 2 (3.9 /[micro]m), the 1013-1020 UTC Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) overpass used for cross sections (yellow), and the 1000 UTC HYSPLIT backward trajectories at 100 m (red), 500 m (blue), and 1,500 m (green) for 36[degrees]N, 122.2[degrees]W.
The radar-lidar (DARDAR) product provides cloud properties by combining, through a synergistic variational algorithm, coincident spaceborne measurements of both the CloudSat (95 GHz) radar and Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) (532 and 1,064 nm) lidar, both instruments being part of the low-orbit A-Train mission.
MODIS, GOES, and Multiangle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) have been making short-wavelength IR measurements of clouds along with CloudSat and Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) generating cloud profiles and cloud-phase information.
Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) were the space platforms used to track these layers and lidars from the LALINET network, as well as independent stations in South America, and they allowed us to get a 4D distribution of Calbuco aerosols during the eruption event and in the days following its occurrence (22-30 April).
1998), and the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) aboard Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO; Winker et al.
The ER-2 aircraft with the second-generation Airborne Multiangle Spectropolarimeter Imager (AirMSPI-2) and cloud physics lidar (CPL) sensors to measure clouds and aerosols in support of ground validation of a new prototype sensor [Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS)] that was placed on the International Space Station (ISS) in 2014 as a complement to the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations ('CALIPSO) mission in sun-synchronous polar orbit.
The legs allowed for a comparison of the lidar and radar remote sensing from HALO to be compared with the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) lidar on Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) and the cloud profiling radar on CloudSat.
These factors, coupled with the arrival of several key satellite instruments capable of making aerosol and trace gas measurements in the Arctic [e.g., the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS), Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI), and Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO)] and the announcement of an International Polar Year (IPY) in 2007/08, motivated the atmospheric chemistry community to design an international project called the Polar Study using Aircraft, Remote Sensing, Surface Measurements and Models, Climate, Chemistry, Aerosols and Transport (POLARCAT), which is aimed at further improving our understanding of Arctic pollution and impacts on climate.
