Metadata for 'Liquid water path and integrated water vapor over the tropical Atlantic during NARVAL2'

doi:10.26050/WDCC/HALO_measurements_6

General Information

Name
Liquid water path and integrated water vapor over the tropical Atlantic during NARVAL2
Acronym
HALO_measurements_6
Project
HAMP (HAlo Microwave Package)
Summary
Products of liquid water path (LWP), rain water path (RWP) and integrated water vapor (IWV, also called precipitable water vapor (PWV)) are retrieved from microwave radiometer observations with auxiliary measurements from backscatter lidar and cloud radar. The nadir measurements were taken by the German High Altitude and Long range research aircraft (HALO) during the Next generation Advanced Remote sensing for VALidation campaign 2 (NARVAL2) in August 2016. Products are provided over tropical Atlantic east of Barbados.
This experiment provides column integrated quantities as seen from satellite perspective but with higher spatially resolution (about 1 km footprint) than available from microwave satellites.
