STERAO-A project description

Stratosphere-Troposphere Experiments: Radiation, Aerosols, and Ozone (STERAO)


This project, led by James Dye, used the M-GLASS to study convection in the Colorado Front Range during June and July, 1996.

"The Stratospheric-Tropospheric Experiment: Radiation, Aerosols and Ozone (STERAO)-Deep Convection Field Project with closely coordinated chemical, dynamical, electrical, and microphysical observations was conducted in northeastern Colorado during June and July of 1996 to investigate the production of NOx by lightning, the transport and redistribution of chemical species in the troposphere by thunderstorms, and the temporal evolution of intracloud and cloud-to-ground lightning for evolving storms on the Colorado high plains."
