The Barbados Cloud Observatory (BCO) is a long-term cloud observatory on the windward tip of the island of Barbados (Stevens et al., 2016). It senses with a range of in-situ and remote sensing instruments the marine trade-winds in the winter time and deeper convection during boreal summer. An overview about the current instrumentation and their daily quicklooks can be found on the BCO blog.


The measurements captured during EUREC\(^4\)A at the BCO are explained on the following pages.
