Each LASSO “scenario” is somewhat unique in terms of how it approaches a particular meteorological regime. This entails focused modeling around a particular suite of ARM measurements in conjunction with an overall scientific theme. Because of this, the data formats and bundle browser interfaces differ by scenario.

Shallow Convection

Data bundles are available for shallow convection days at the Southern Great Plains atmospheric observatory during the period 2015–2019.

Deep Convection

The Cloud, Aerosol, and Complex Terrain Interactions (CACTI) field campaign is the focus of the second LASSO scenario, generally referred to as the LASSO-CACTI scenario. The LASSO-CACTI datastream consists of a library of mesoscale and large-eddy simulations located near Córdoba, Argentina, from selected case dates between October 2018 through March 2019.

Future Scenarios

Development of a maritime cloud scenario at the Eastern North Atlantic atmospheric observatory has begun, with details forthcoming.
