FIRE I Cirrus Model Forcing and Data for the GEWEX Cloud System Study Data Integration for Model Evaluation (GCSS-DIME)

Abstract: FIRE I Cirrus took place from 13 October through 2 December 1986 in
the upper midwest USA centered on Madison, Wisconsin. The experiment
area extended from about 30N to 55N latitude and from 80W to 125W
longitude. This case study presents data from 13 Oct 1986 to 2 Nov
1986 and covers a region from 30N to 55N latitude and from 125W to 80W

The data for this experiment is under Working Group 2 (Cloud Systems
Studies) of the GEWEX Cloud System Study (GCSS) to improve physical
parameterizations of clouds, other boundary layer processes, and their
