Marine Stratus Experiment (MASE)

When- July 2005

Location- Point Reyes National Seashore, CA

North of San Francisco

slide2

Marine Stratus Experiment (MASE)

  • Objectives-
  • Examine the effects of aerosol loading, composition and size distribution on cloud droplet number concentrations and size distributions.
  • Characterize the effects of turbulence and cloud properties such as liquid water content, droplet number concentration and droplet dispersion on the initiation of drizzle.
  • Gather in-situ cloud data suitable for examination of the dependence of the autoconversion rate on droplet size distribution and number concentration.

Collaborations

  • Proposed to conduct MASE in collaboration with -
  • MArine Stratus Radiation, Aerosol, and Drizzle (MASRAD) IOP
    • Point Reyes — March 2005-September 2005
    • PI’s: Miller (BNL), Bucholtz (NRL), Albrecht (Miami), and Kollias (Miami)
  • Summer deployment
  • of the CIRPAS Twin Otter
  • (Seinfeld et al)
slide6

MASRAD Scientific Objectives

    • Investigate the general relationship between cloud mesoscale structure, aerosols, cloud microphysics, drizzle and radiation in marine stratus clouds
    • Investigate the effect of aerosol on the amount of solar radiation absorbed by clouds

Call for Participation

  • Ideal opportunity for ASP to begin indirect effects studies.
    • Availability of facilities that may not be available for future studies.
    • Good location with lots of clouds.
  • Encourage ASP scientists to participate by refining the scientific goals of the project, by providing useful measurements for the G-1 or at Pt. Reyes, or by using the data to achieve ASP scientific goals.
