Scientific Goals

The Barbados Cloud Observatory operated by the Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology aims to collect continuous observations of shallow marine cumulus clouds. Specific goals are:

  • to develop a long term database of shallow cumulus cloud statistical properties
  • to investigate frequency and intensity of rain due to trade cumulus
  • to compare ground based and satellite based measurements of cloud statistical properties and associated precipitation
  • to understand interaction between aerosols and cloud properties


<html> <p> The site is located on the east coast of the island of Barbados, on a site called Deebles Point, where it is exposed to the relatively undisturbed easterly (trade) winds. <ul>
