Description

This data set contains meteorological and radiometeric data from the NCAR Sabreliner aircraft that was collected during the 1986 FIRE Cirrus IFO. The NCAR Sabreliner research aircraft is a Rockwell International Sabreliner Model 60 aircraft, a low-wind twin-jet monoplane. The NCAR instrumentation that measured the data described above consisted of: 1. Aircraft Position, Velocity and Attitude -- Litton LTN-51 INS (Inertial Navigation System) 2. Static Pressure -- Rosemount Model 1201F1 Pressure Transducer (Fuselage Port) 3. Temperatures -- Rosemount Type 102 Non-dieced and Dieced Sensors (with Rosemount Model 510BH Amplifiers) 4. Dew Point and Humidity -- EG&G Model 137-C3 Dew Point Hygrometers -- NCAR Model LA-3 Lyman-alpha Hygrometer 5. Flow Angle Sensors -- Rosemount Model 858 Gust Probe -- Rosemount Model 1221FVL Differential Pressure Transducer 6. Cloud Physics -- Rosemount 871A Icing Rate Detector 7. Radiation Irradiances -- Shortwave Radiation (.3 - 2.8 microns): RAF Modified Epply Model PSP Pyranometers -- Near Infrared Radiation (.7 - 2.8 microns): RAF Modified Epply Model PSP Pyranometers -- Infrared Radiation (4 - 50 microns): RAF Modified Epply Model PIR Pyrgeometers
