Scientists Launch Flights to Gather Detailed Data on Aerosols and Clouds
Description: For an intensive period throughout June and July, and again next January and February, scientists will take to the skies in a specially outfitted aircraft to gather data on the properties of aerosols and clouds above the Eastern North Atlantic. They'll traverse horizontal tracks above and through clouds and spiral down through atmospheric layers to gather samples and measurements that add fine-scale detail to 3D cloud profiles constructed by nearby instruments on the ground.
