© Crown copyright Met Office CAVIAR field campaign #1 Overview of Camborne campaign CAVIAR work package 3.3 Campaign centred on Camborne (Cornwall), 13 August to 25 September 2008 Site provides measurements of meteorological variables and radiosonde balloon profiles of temperature and water vapour FAAM aircraft flew in conjunction with measurements of NPLs high resolution solar-tracking FTS on the ground As a coastal site can exploit downward pointing interferometer measurements from the FAAM aircraft over the sea (homogeneous surface emission) as well as upward pointing measurements Campaign #2 (Jungfraujoch Swiss Alps scientific station, Sept 2009) will be complementary with tenth column water vapour c.f.

© Crown copyright Met Office B396 flight (19 Aug 2008) Persistent boundary layer cloud over Camborne, with some clear sky breaks 10 dropsondes released 12 aircraft runs over Camborne at different altitudes
© Crown copyright Met Office B397 flight (22 Aug 2008) Occasional broken boundary layer cloud over Camborne, with good clear sky breaks Double flight with refuel 17 dropsondes released 22 aircraft runs over Camborne at different altitudes
© Crown copyright Met Office B400 flight (18 Sep 2008) Very good clear sky conditions Flight included chase of radiosonde for water vapour intercomparison 6 dropsondes released 8 aircraft runs over Camborne at different altitudes
© Crown copyright Met Office B400 flight (18 Sep 2008) Best clear sky conditions encountered – no need for cloud hole hunting ARIES and TAFTS seemed to operate well Reasonably stable atmospheric structure High aerosol loading but IR measurements insensitive to this
