Dates: 15 March - 04 April 1999
Location: Northern Midwest, Great Lakes, & Canada
Principal Investigators: Dr. Chris Moeller (UWisc)
Additional Sensors: Camera (RC-10), NAST-I, NAST-M, & S-HIS
Objective: Objective: There are two major objectives in this campaign.
First, to validate atmospheric soundings observed across polar frontal systems.
Second, WINTEX will test the ability of the imaging and sounding sensors to
detect the geometrical and optical properties of clouds, which are particularly
difficult to detect over snow and ice surfaces.
