The Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry (DC3) field campaign focused on the impacts of deep, mid-latitude continental convective clouds, including their dynamical, physical, and lightning processes, on upper-tropospheric composition and chemistry. DC3 had a single deployment over the majority of the continental US, with operations over Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, and Alabama, during May and June of 2012. Three airborne platforms collected in situ and remote sensing observations that included: specific gas and chemical concentrations, cloud and precipitation particle microphysical properties, and temperature and water vapor content profiles. Ground-based observation sites included scanning radars and launched balloons. DC3 was funded through NASA’s Tropospheric Composition Program.
