FEATURED DATA ARCHIVE
7 February 2008
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.
