Abstract
  • Measurements of ice water content (IWC) and mean ice-crystal size and concentration made by two in-situ probes, C, VI and PVM, were compared on the DC-8 aircraft during SUCCESS flights in orographic ice clouds. The comparison of 1WC in these wave clouds, that formed at temperatures of about -38 °C on April 30 and -62 °C on May 2, 1996, showed good agreement. The comparison of ice crystal concentrations agreed better for the April-30 clouds than for the May-2 clouds ; and the effective radius compared for both probes and for remote retrievals from aircraft and satellite for a segment of the Berthoud wave cloud (May 2) agreed within 30%. The measured parameters of the ice crystals were similar to earlier measurements and recent modeling of cold wave clouds.
