JOYCE-CF data products include comprehensive observations on the whole life cycle of clouds and precipitation. Besides single instrument observations, the main focus lies on synergetic products based on several observation methods, especially for classification of precipitation, clouds and boundary layer structure. Most datasets are available 24/7 and also raw data can be accessed on request.
