McFarquhar, G.M., et al., 2017: Processing of ice cloud in situ data collected by bulk water, scattering and imaging probes: Fundamentals, uncertainties and efforts towards consistency. Amer. Meteor.

This paper, written with several members of the PI’s research group details methods used to process data collected by cloud probes installed on aircraft to measure the sizes, phases, shapes and bulk properties of hydrometeors. We discuss how uncertainties, caveats, and assumptions in processing algorithms affect derived products. Many of these methods are currently used in McFarquhar’s research group to analyze data collected from many field projects at multiple locations in the world.
