Abstract

NASA's ORACLES (ObseRvations of CLouds above Aerosols and their intEractionS) campaign aims to understand the key parameters and processes that drive the interactions of biomass burning emissions from Southern Africa with clouds over the Southeast (SE) Atlantic, using data from three four-week deployments in 2016-2018. Hyperspectral measurements of direct and diffuse solar, cloud-transmitted and cloud-reflected radiation are key observables to study these aerosol-cloud interactions. We describe preliminary results from two of the hyperspectral instruments deployed in ORACLES-2016, the Sky-Scanning, Sun-Tracking Atmospheric Research (4STAR), and the Solar Spectral Flux Radiometers (SSFR).
