The Deep Convective Clouds & Chemistry field campaign was designed to investigate the impact of deep, midlatitude continental convective clouds, including their dynamical, physical, and lightning processes, on upper tropospheric (UT) composition and chemistry. The campaign made use of extensively instrumented aircraft platforms and ground-based observations. DC3 was motivated to determine the role of thunderstorms on the concentration of ozone in the upper troposphere, where ozone acts as a greenhouse gas.
