FIRE II - ASTEX Data Sets

 

First ISCCP Regional Experiment (FIRE) II - Atlantic & Stratocumulus Transition Experiment (ASTEX) was conducted in the eastern North Atlantic Ocean. It was designed to improve the understanding of the physical processes involved in the life cycles of cirrus and marine stratocumulus systems, the radiative properties of these clouds and their interactions.
