DC3: Deep Convective Clouds & Chemistry Project


The Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry Project (DC3) field campaign investigates the impact of deep, midlatitude continental convective clouds, including their dynamical, physical, and lightning processes, on upper tropospheric (UT) composition and chemistry. The DC3 field campaign makes use of extensively instrumented aircraft platforms and ground-based observations. The observations are conducted in three locations: 1) northeastern Colorado, 2) central Oklahoma, and 3) northern Alabama in order to gather data on different types of storms and with different boundary layer compositions as well as to ensure sampling of convection during the time period of the field campaign. The types of storms being sampled are air mass, multicell, and supercell convection.
