HAIC and HIWC Science Team Meeting<img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /> and HIWC Science Team MeetingHAIC and HIWC Science Team Meeting<p>From 5th to 9th December 2016, CIRA will host the last official HAIC-HIWC Science Team Meeting.</p><p>This week the HAIC-HIWC Science Team will conduct private meetings at CIRA to discuss research on the measurement and prediction of high ice water content areas of deep convective clouds. The work was conceived during meetings within the aviation regulatory, airframer, and jet engine manufacturing communities,  after it was recognized that jet engine powerloss events and aircraft airdata probe failures were occurring in such cloud conditions, and little was known about the associated cloud properties.</p><p>The HAIC-HIWC Science team is a collaboration between the North American and Australian High Ice Water Content (HIWC)  and European High Altitude Ice Crystals (HAIC) projects.  The collaboration has culminated in two successful test flight programs in which highly instrumented aircraft from CNRS, the National Research Council of Canada, and Honeywell Co. have collected a unique data set on the in-situ and remotely sensed properties of high ice water content regions of deep tropical  clouds near Darwin, Australia and Cayenne, French Guiana.</p><p>The HIWC collaborators include scientists and engineers from NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Boeing Co., the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Environment Canada, the National Research Council of Canada,  the University of Utah, the University of Illinois,  Science Engineering Associates and Met Analytics Inc.</p><p>The European HAIC collaborators include over 40 individual agencies, companies, and universities,  but the agencies most involved in the collaborative cloud measurements include Airbus Ind., the Service des Avions Français Instrumentés pour la Recherche en Environnement (SAFIRE), the Laboratoire de Météorologie Physique (LaMP), U. Clermont Ferrand, the Laboratoire Atmosphères, Milieux, Observations Spatiales, Paris (LATMOS), Meteo France, and CIRA.</p><div><span style="margin:0px;padding:0px;"><br></span></div>12/4/2016 11:00:00 PM12/8/2016 11:00:00 PM12/1/2016 11:00:00 PMCIRAVia Maiorise - 81043 Capua, Caserta, ItalyGP0|#64eb9e68-3fd6-4681-b0f1-551c7b83c00b;L0|#064eb9e68-3fd6-4681-b0f1-551c7b83c00b|Project Meeting;GTSet|#f95fe7e3-b647-4453-bf94-904923324971;GPP|#18eb5d93-a895-45ea-8d07-76cc2e1a43bbfrom 9:30 am to 6:00 pm
