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

Abstract: FIRE Marine Stratus took place from 30 June through 19 July 1987 off
the southwest coast of California . The experiment area extended from
about 25N to 50N latitude and from 115W to 160W longitude.

The data for this experiment is under Working Group 1 (Boundary Layer
Clouds) of the GEWEX Cloud System Study (GCSS) to improve physical
parameterizations of clouds, other boundary layer processes, and their
