ARM Enhanced Shortwave Experiment (ARESE)

25 September 1995 - 1 November 1995

Lead Scientist: Ted Cress

Site: SGP

ARESE studied the absorption of solar radiation by the clear and cloudy atmosphere. Measurements were conducted using three aircraft platforms: a high altitude manned Egrett aircraft, an instrumented Twin Otter and the NASA ER-2, as well as satellites and the ARM central and extended facilities in North Central Oklahoma. The project ran from September 22 - November 1, 1995.
