As a major component of the ICARTT field
campaign, NASA’s DC-8 participated in measurement comparisons
organized by the ICARTT Measurement
Comparison Group. Presented here
are the results from four highly coordinated side-by-side comparisons.
Three comparisons were conducted with the NOAA WP-3D and one
with the FAAM BAe-146. The distance between aircraft pairs
was typically around 200m. The comparisons were conducted
in two phases. The first phase involved blind comparison of
field data. The results shown here are from the second phase
comparison of final data which are given in the data archives:
INTEX-A and NOAA
NEAQS 2004 (standard icartt login required - please contact Tom Ryerson or Ken Aikin for help accessing the NOAA site).
A brief description of the measurements and PI contact
information can be found in the file headers of the data files.
are encouraged to directly contact the individual PI for specific
questions regarding the measurements. If you have questions
related to the comparison protocol and procedures, please do
not hesitate to contact the Measurement
Comparison Group, specifically,
