Microfronts95 - CLASS Deployment

This was a study of the fine-scale structure and energy dissipation associated with frontal systems which used both ASTER and CLASS systems. The scales of interest during the March 1995 measurement period ranged from convective plumes to the synoptic scale. The CLASS system was used for the first time in an up-and-down mode, in which the balloon was released several minutes into the flight and the sonde parachuted down, to obtain two profiles through the planetary boundary layer for each flight.
