FIRE: First ISCCP Regional Experiment (FIRE)

Mid-1980s-late-1990s

FIRE (The First ISCCP Regional Experiment) was a United States scientific program organized in support of the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP). It was a multidisciplinary research program to study the roles that clouds play in the global climate. The modeling of many physical processes on many different time and space scales was crucially important to the success of FIRE. Both physical modeling, which includes all processes important to the characterization and evolution of cloud systems, and global climate modeling with general-circulation models (GCM's) were components of the FIRE research program; these vital modeling components were integrated into FIRE through the participation of modeling researchers in the planning and execution of data gathering and analysis phases of FIRE. FIRE program dates: FIRE I (1984-1989), FIRE II (1989-1994), FIRE III (1995-2000).
