) (e.g., Stevens and Bony 2013a ). Cloud properties are strongly dependent on the humidity distribution of the ambient air, which in nature varies significantly over distances corresponding to the size of a model grid box ( Cusack et al. 1999 ; Tompkins 2002 ; Wang et al. 2010 ). Due to the fact that clouds reflect solar radiation back to space and trap infrared radiation emitted by the surface, even small differences in modeling cloud feedbacks can have a strong influence on climate simulations

Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) BAe 146. FAAM operated from the United Kingdom and HALO and the two Falcon aircraft from Keflavik, Iceland, in an area covering the North Atlantic, north of 45°N, and northern and central Europe. The payloads were chosen to observe the required profiles of wind, temperature, moisture, and cloud properties, and in the case of FAAM, in situ cloud microphysics. The strategy was to deploy HALO with its extended range to observe moisture transport and diabatic
