Radiation – Aerosol – Cloud Experiment in the Arctic Circle (RACEPAC)
Principal Investigator: Ehrlich, André
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: These research activities combine investigations of clouds and atmospheric aerosol in the Beaufort Sea. The main aim of the cloud studies is to improve the understanding of the cloud-related processes in the Arctic atmosphere and to use these measurements to improve the performance of regional and global climate models of the Arctic. To understand cloud processes knowledge on aerosol properties wh...

Study on the Vertical Distribution of Ice in Arctic Clouds (VERDI)
Principal Investigator: Bierwirth, Eike A
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: Climate change and sea ice change affects all who live in the north. The aim of this project is to improve understanding of the physical processes in Arctic clouds and their contribution to the current changes in the polar environment, and thereby reducing uncertainties in regional and global model simulations important for future weather and climate prediction. These research activities combin...

Radar Observations in Support of the Mackenzie GEWEK Study (MAGS)
Principal Investigator: Haykin, Simon
Licensed Year(s): 1999 1998
Summary: The Mackenzie GEWEX Study (MAGS) is the Canadian component of the international effort called the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX), in support of a World Climate Research Programme to observe, understand, and model the hydrological cycle and energy fluxes in the atmosphere, at land surface, and in the upper oceans. A transportable radar system, called the IPIX radar, which was set ...

FIRE III: An Arctic Cloud Study
Principal Investigator: Isaac, George
Licensed Year(s): 1998
Summary: Arctic clouds are dominant on average covering 40 to 60% of the skies over the Arctic ocean. They exert a large influence on the radiation balance in the Arctic, where climate change effects are predicted and observed to be largest in the northern hemisphere. The FIRE III field project will use in-situ measurements obtained using instrumental aircraft, in combination with concurrent satellite dta,...
