CCOPE: Cooperative Convective Precipitation Experiment


The Bureau of Reclamation (BuREC) and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) collaborated in a joint field program called the Cooperative Convective Precipitation Experiment (CCOPE) that was conducted near Miles City, Montana (22 May - 7 August 1981). CCOPE was a coordinated measurement program on convective clouds and storms carried out to elucidate how the microphysical processes and the air motions interact in the formation and development of precipitation.
