Knopf, D.A., P. DeMott, J. Creamean, T. Hill, N Riemer, N. Hiranuma, A. Laskin, R. Sullivan, A. Fridlind, X. Liu, and M. West, 2020: Aerosol-Ice Formation Closure Pilot Study (AEROICESTUDY) Field Campaign Report. DOE/SC-ARM-20-017. U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, doi:10.2172/1691464.

The aerosol-ice formation closure pilot study (AEROICESTUDY) was a field campaign conducted at the U.S. Department of Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility at the Southern Great Plains (SGP) observatory from October 7 to 28, 2019. The purpose of this campaign was to test a field observational approach for conducting an aerosol-ice formation closure study. In other words, the goal was to predict the number of ice nucleating particles (INPs) from the measurements of physical and chemical aerosol properties and compare those to measured INP number concentrations. This project was motivated by the fact that the aerosol community has widely conducted aerosol radiative closure, aerosol-cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), and CCN-droplet closure studies to test the physical models and parameterizations that cloud-resolving and climate models rely on to perform reliable simulations of the Earth system and energy budget. However, very few closure studies related to INPs have been conducted, and to our knowledge, none using robust, size-resolved, ambient aerosol composition measurements as model inputs.
