Project Description: 

The Wyoming Airborne Integrated Cloud Observations (WAICO) field project sought to improve upon airborne cloud observation capabilities by integrating and testing the elastic lidar, the Wyoming Cloud Radar (WCR), and the microwave radiometer on the University of Wyoming King Air along with in situ cloud probes for cloud studies. In Spring 2009, the University of Wyoming King Air flew WAICO missions in Wyoming air space with the goal to improve airborne cloud observation facilities and provide a comprehensive data set for algorithm development and cloud study.
