-The **Jülich ObservatorY for Cloud Evolution** (JOYCE) is operated jointly by the [[|University of Cologne]]the [[|Research Centre Jülich]] and the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre "Patterns in Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere-SystemsMonitoringModelling and Data Assimilation" ([[|TR32]]).+AWIPEV ist the French-German Arctic Research Base operated by the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research [[|(AWI)]] and the French Polar Institute Paul Emile Victor [[|(IPEV)]]. Within the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre TR 172 "ArctiC AmplificationClimate Relevant Atmospheric and SurfaCe Processes, and Feedback Mechanisms (AC)³" ([[|(AC)³]]), the University of Cologne collaborates with AWI in the long-term observations at the Atmospheric Observatory.
 ===== Scientific Goals ===== ===== Scientific Goals =====
-JOYCE instrumentation aims to observe spatial and temporal variability of atmospheric water cycle variables{{ youtube>small:gcdeuluWWEQ}}\\ +Within (AC)³, researchers at the University of Cologne, University Bremen and AWI will characterize the thermodynamic structure, clouds, aerosols, and trace gases in the atmospheric column at Ny-Ålesund on a long-term basisIn Cologne, the research focus is on remote sensing of the termodynamic structure and cloud macro- and microphysical properties using the synergy of the established observations at AWIPEV and new instrumentation, e.g. a cloud radar.  
-Specific goals are   +The ground-based observations at Ny-Ålesund will be in accompanied by satellite, aircraft and ship measurements, as well as modeling studies on various scales. 
-  * to disentangle water vapor variations due to advection and to local surface influence   + 
-  * to better understand the development of boundary layer clouds  +Specific scientific questions are   
-  * to analyse cloud radiation interaction +  * To what extent and with which accuracy can we gain insight into the thermodynamic, trace gas, aerosol and cloud macro- and microphysical properties at Ny-Ålesund? 
-  * to observe precipitation formation +  * What is their impact on the radiation and energy budget throughout the vertical extent from the surface to the lower mesosphere? 
 +  * How do Arctic low-level clouds respond to global climate change? 
 +  * How representative are the Ny-Ålesund observations across other Arctic sites?

-===== Data availability ===== 
-JOYCE provides a number of resources, which characterize the thermodynamic state of the atmospheric column including vertical profiles of temperarture, humidity and cloud macro- and microphysical properties as well as the aerosol loading. The data is freely accessible for scientific and educational purposes and may be obtained through direct contact to [[|Dr. U. Löhnert]].
