SCP: Shallow Cold Pool (SCP) Experiment


The Shallow Cold Pool (SCP) experiment was an ISFS deployment in a shallow gully within the Pawnee Grasslands. The primary goal of SCP was to examine the formation and maintenance of common shallow cold pools. These cold pools had not been previously examined with turbulence measurements and almost nothing is known about their dynamics and interaction with gravity waves and other submesoscale motions.
