SOFIE PMC measurement results for the 2007 northern polar summer as time-height cross sections of a) ice detection frequency, b) ice mass density, c) particle shape (axial ratio of an oblate spheroid), and d) effective radius. Three-day average ice layer top, peak, and bottom altitudes are overlain in all panels (solid lines), and average mesopause heights are shown in a). White regions indicate the absence of data.
