Studying Mixed-Phase Clouds at SPL

Storm Peak Laboratory in Steamboat Springs, CO is hosting a field campaign studying mixed-phase clouds which are composed of both water and liquid. Different instruments at the lab are currently taking measurements relevant to cloud formation, ice nucleation, and other meteorological parameters. The NSF-funded project which is titled “An in situ Closure Study of Mixed Phase Clouds at Storm Peak” is a collaboration between Purdue University in Indiana, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany, and the HART group at the University of Utah. Results from the campaign will be posted to our website and social media when they become available.
