On 21 July, 1992 several severe convective storms developed over Central Europe ahead of an approaching cold front. They caused considerable damage and several fatalities, especially in Switzerland and Southern Germany.
In the same summer, the Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR), Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany organized a meteorological field experiment CLEOPATRA to investigate clouds. The storms on July, 21 occurred during an intensive observational period of the experiment and were well documented by many observational platforms: such as satellites, aircraft, radar, lightning network, ground-based weather stations.
This CD-ROM contains the whole observational dataset for this extraordinary event together with numerical model simulations. All instruments and systems are documented and helpful references are provided. A large number of quick-look images give an overview of the data.
The dataset is suitable for researchers and also for interested laymen. It offers a unique possibility to learn about the cause and nature of these storms in a comprehensive way.
