FIRE: First ISLSCP Regional Experiment
SummaryThe overall goal of the International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP) is to improve our understanding of satellite measurements relating particularly to the fluxes of momentum, heat, water vapor, and carbon dioxide from land surfaces. The First ISLSCP Regional Experiment Cirrus Intensive Field Observation (IFO) was conducted in central Wisconsin from 13 October to 2 November 1986 and involved coordinated satellite, airborne, and surface-based measurements of cirrus clouds. The objective of the Cirrus IFO was to collect high space and time resolution data of the physical state of the atmosphere and cirrus lifecycles, and to investigate the relationship among high resolution cloud data, ISCCP data, and model cloud parameterizations.
