24 May 2011

CIPS observed its first cloud of the NH 2011 season on 24 May, just north of the Queen Elizabeth Islands. Similar to other seasons, this was four days after the SOFIE first detection because of the lower sensitivity of CIPS. Clouds have increased in number and intensity each day since then. The image here is a preliminary "daily daisy" from 30 May, showing widespread clouds over the polar region.
