Abstract:

Weather scans taken by the Lincoln Laboratory ALCOR radar from Roi- Namur Island, Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands, were used to obtain information on the ice water content IWC at altitudes above 10 km at tropical latitudes. Selected individual scans are presented, along with the envelopes of IWC vs height. Perusal of the information uncovered signficant biases in the manner in which the data were collected.
