DYCOMS-II Aircraft: C-130 Cloud Droplet Spectrum Fast-FSSP Data


Fast-FSSP (FFSSP) data were acquired during the DYCOMS-II field campaign in Summer 20001. There were 10 research flights studying stratus clouds. FFSSP data is available for almost the complete duration of the last 8 flights (from RF03 to RF10) except for flights RF04 and RF08 for which some cloudy legs are missing. Available time sections for each flight are listed in Table 1 of the readme file.
