INUIT Field Campaign at the High Alpine Research Station Jungfraujoch,
Jan-Feb 2013


-> Picture Gallery

This field campaign was a collaboration between the projects INUIT, CLACE2013, INUPIAQ, and NUCLAC.
The main objective was the in-situ characterization of ice particle residuals (IPR) sampled from mixed-phase. Furthermore, ice nucelating particles (INP) activated by an ice nucleus counter were exctracted by a pumped CVI and analysed by offline and online methods. Additionally, aerosol properties and cloud microphysical properties were investigated.
