Ice-D

ICE-D

This study is tentative at this stage and is currently in the planning phase.  This study would be a follow-up study to two previous studies performed by our group (ICE-L and ICE-T) on the C-130 aircraft. The plan would be to do flights near Cape Verde, South Africa in an effort to better understand how African dust and desert derived bioparticles influence ice formation in mixed phase clouds.  As with previous studies, this would be done in collaboration with Paul DeMott (CSU) and Andy Heymsfield (NCAR).
