SSBLIM project description

Snow-Shading Boundary-Layer Interaction Measurements


The random location of snow-bare ground boundaries in a given region and their temporal modifications make aircraft the best practical platform the observe the structure of the snow breeze. The NCAR King Air N312D was instrumented and flown during the period 1 Feb - 19 Mar 1988 on 9 4-5 hour flights. A detailed description of the SSBLIM experiment and its main results are given in Cramer, J. 1988: "Observational evaluation of snow cover effects on the generation and modification of mesoscale circulations", Master's Thesis Paper #439 CSU Department of Atmospheric Sciences 143 Pp
