JOYCE-CF Products

The data products available from JOYCE-CF provide a comprehensive view on cloud and precipitation processes on different scales. Therefore, in addition to cloud and precipitation quantities, many other topics are included to better understand the atmospheric evolution around clouds, as well as prior to cloud formation. The synergy of our ground-based remote sensing instruments has the unique potential for value-added products using two or more co-located instruments.

For many variables, our datasets include profile data, vertically integrated quantities, in-situ data as well as spatially resolved fields.
The main observed quantities can be grouped in the following topics:

  • Cloud geometry/occurrence
  • Cloud microphysics
  • Precipitation amount
  • Water vapor
  • Temperature
  • Wind
  • Trace gases
  • Aerosols
