Fall 2002 SCM IOP

3 November 2002 - 23 November 2002

Lead Scientist: Minghua Zhang

Site: SGP

This SCM IOP is proposed to run concurrently with the
SGP UAV flights. Part of the UAV Science Plan is to
help close the column for providing estimates of
advective forcing. The radiation, cloud, and atmospheric
state measurements from the UAV can folded in with the
SCM IOP sounding data and routine ARM data as input to
the variational analysis, which gives us the advective
forcing and mean column values for driving SCMs and CRMs.
