Record #191889:

Antarctic clouds / Tom Lachlan-Cope.

Title: Antarctic clouds / Tom Lachlan-Cope.
Author(s): Lachlan-Cope, Tom.
Date: 2010.
In: Polar Research. (2010.), Vol. 29(2) (2010)
Abstract: Considers available cloud observations and highlights importance of Antarctic clouds in global climate system and need for better observations in future. Surface observations suggest that fractional cloud cover at South Pole is around 50-60% in all seasons, whereas cloud cover rises to around 80-90% close to coast. Sparse microphysical observation of cloud parameters show predominantly ice-crystal clouds across interior, with mixed-phase clouds close to coasts. Crystal sizes vary from 5 to 30μm (effective radius) in interior and larger ice crystals and water drops near coast, with wide range of crystal shapes observed at all sites.
