Ice crystal shapes in tropical ice clouds are estimated with two different remote sensing methods and compared with measurements from an in situ cloud aerosol spectrometer (CAS) during the Cirrus Regional Study of Tropical Anvils and Cirrus Layers-Florida Area Cirrus Experiment (CRYSTAL-FACE) campaign conducted in Florida during July 2002. The remote sensing techniques use dual-satellite reflectances and lidar linear depolarization rates. The ice crystal shape is derived from CAS measurements of forward a…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
