What was the purpose of CLARE?
The objectives of the CLARE 2000: Cloud Lidar Radar Experiments campaign were to allow additional observations, and as for CLARE 1998 to derive the macrophysical (bottom and top of the cloud, vertical structure …), microphysical (ice/liquid water content), radiative (re), and dynamic properties of clouds, from the radar-lidar observations to further test algorithms and investigate the interaction between dynamic/microphysical/radiative processes.
What was the outcome of CLARE?
The initial objectives of the CLARE campaigns, which were to provide an extended data base, and develop new analysis methods have been met despite some problems with system operation.
