The Campaign

The Cloud and Land Surface Interaction Campaign (CLASIC07) was a NASA-led project that focused on helping scientists gain a better understanding of the role that land surface processes play in cumulus convection. CLASIC07 had 1 deployment in the summer of 2007, which occurred in the Southern Great Plains. Five aircraft and one helicopter were used to collect measurements of cloud and surface properties, heat, moisture and carbon fluxes, and various other meteorological and atmospheric chemistry parameters. Satellite overpases coincided with aircraft measurements while ground instruments were utilized to provide “ground truth” estimates. CLASIC07 was funded by NASA’s Water and Energy Cycle Program.
