CLASIC (Cloud and Land Surface Interaction Campaign) focuses on advancing the understanding of how land surface processes influence cumulus convection. CLASIC was conducted in the Southern Great Plains (SGP – a region comprising Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas) of the United States during June 2007. The SGP site consists of in situ and remote-sensing instrument clusters arrayed across approximately 55,000 square miles (143,000 square kilometers) in north-central Oklahoma, making it the largest and most extensive climate research field site in the world. The CAR flew aboard Sky Research Jetstream-31 and measured spectral and angular distribution of scattered light by clouds and aerosols, and provided bidirectional reflectance of various surfaces, and imagery of cloud and Earth surface features. By making such diverse measurements, our goal is to widen the audience of potential end-users and to foster collaborations among campaign participants and with outside users. This data set consists of observations made with the CAR instrument and includes values for bidirectional reflectance factor at varying spectral bands.
