First MAGIC Science Workshop



The MAGIC field campaign was undertaken by the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility of the US Department of Energy between September, 2012 and October, 2013. The Second ARM Mobile Facility, AMF2, was deployed on the Horizon Lines cargo container ship Spirit, which made repeated transects between Los Angeles and Honolulu, measuring properties of clouds and precipitation, radiation, aerosols, and atmospheric structure to better characterize the stratocumulus-to-cumulus transition that occurs along this route. MAGIC consisted of nearly 20 round trips, nearly 200 days at sea, and more than 500 radiosonde launches, producing an unprecedented data set.

The First MAGIC Science Workshop will be held at BNL May 5-7, 2014 to present the status of MAGIC activities, to allow investigators to present results or preliminary results, to determine what areas require attention in order to move forward with model intercomparisons or other analyses, to establish networking and collaborative possibilities, and to decide on future MAGIC activities.
