CloudSat / CALIPSO

CloudSat / CALIPSO (CS/C)

The opportunity for Cal/Val and intercomparison between DC-8 in situ and remote sensing measurements and CloudSat/CALIPSO measurements should not be missed. The main constraints will be the necessity to fly down the nadir track with precision, as the swath width is only 1-2 km. We will need excellent ephemeris data and some input from interested PIs to determine priority days for this mission segment and desired cloud fields to sample. Ten (10) minute flight segment is recommended if clouds are main target; 30-40 minutes if aerosol.
