General Information

Name
KONTROL 1984 - First Experiment on Convection and Turbulence over the North Sea
Project
UNI_HH_MI_fielddata (Field Data of the Meteorological Institute, University of Hamburg)
Summary
KONTROL 1984 is part of research activities focused on organized convection phenomena as they are often manifested in organized cloud patterns like the well-known boundary layer cloud streets or open and closed cellular cloud structures.

The experimental part of the investigations began with the experiment KonTur (Konvektion and Turbulenz) in September and October 1981. It continued with the experiments KONTROL in August 1984 and KONTROL in October 1985. All experiments took place over the German Bight in the southeastern part of the North Sea.

The experimental concept based on the use of two fixed stations performing continuous aerological and surface observations and two aircraft conducting detailed observations during special periods. The stations were the research vessel Valdivia and the research platform NORDSEE (54°42'N, 7°10'E). The aircraft were a FALCON-20 of DFVLR and a DO-28 Skyservant of the TU Braunschweig.
