Abstract

Radiosonde data collected during the First International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCPP) Regional Experiment (FIRE), 1987, the Atlantic Stratocumulus Transition Experiment (ASTEX), 1992, and the Tropical Instability and Waves Experiment (TIWE), 1990, were used to develop four composite thermodynamic soundings of the marine boundary layer for cloud conditions ranging from solid stratocumulus to trade cumulus and sea surface temperatures ranging from 16° to 27°C. Average cloud fraction and cloud base height for the composite soundings were estimated using laser ceilometers located at each of the four sites. -from Authors
