Full mission name: North Atlantic Rainfall VALidation
NARVAL (Next-generation Aircraft Remote sensing for Validation Studies) was conceived as a mission devoted to better understanding the prevalence and structure of clouds and precipitation from shallow convection in two large-scale regimes. The first being in the tradewind regions of the North Atlantic (NARVAL South), the other in the cold sector of developing winter storms, over the mid-latitude stormtrack of the North Atlantic (NARVAL North). The main goal was to explore the use of the new German research airplane HALO (High Altitude and Long range research aircraft) as a remote sensing platform for retrieving the state of the atmosphere with particular attention on moist processes and composition.
