University of Washington Convair-580 Cloud and Microphysics Data

This dataset includes airborne measurements obtained from the Convair-580 aircraft during the Improvement of Microphysical Parameterization through Observational Verification Experiment 1 (IMPROVE-1). This dataset contains a variety of cloud and microphysics including 2DC probe, liquid water content, state parameter, size spectrum of cloud and precipitation, dew point, and cloud drop effective radius data in both ASCII text and Excel formats. Parameters are not consistent across the data files in this dataset.
