Cloud observations in the Arctic

Re-installation of the 94 GHz cloud radar at the Arctic German/French station AWIPEV at Ny-Ålesund in June 2019:

In June 2019, Mario Mech and Kerstin Ebell have re-installed the 94 GHz cloud radar at the Arctic German/French station AWIPEV at Ny-Ålesund. Cloud radar observations have already been performed between June 2016 and October 2018 and will now be continued.

The radar measurements will provide detailed information on the composition of Arctic clouds and will help us to better understand the role of clouds in the enhanced warming of the Arctic, the so-called Arctic Amplification.
