Bannerclouds at Mount Zugspitze in GermanyJan H. Schween1, Jochen Reuder21Meteorological Inst. Univ. Munich, currently at Institute for Geophysics and Meteorology University of Cologne, Germany , email@example.com 2currently at Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen, Norway
air inside cloud is warmer than windward air
Banner clouds are clouds resembling a banner or flag which form on the leeward side of ridges or peaked mountains. While the windward side of the mountain remains cloud free the cloud forms only on the leeward side.
Mount Zugspitze (2962m asl) in the german alps is served from three sides with cable cars. This and the infrastructure on the top of the montain gave us the opportunity to perform continous measurements.

We thank the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn (BZB) for the possibility to equip the cable cars with our instruments.
The personnel of the meteorological station Zugspitze of the German Meteorological Service (DWD) supports us with observations.
