Abstract To relate cloudwater composition with large-scale circulation features, cloud events sampled during the 1986-88 field seasons by the U.S. EPA Mountain Cloudwater Chemistry Pragram (MCCP) were classified according to the principal synoptic features responsible for cloud production. The scheme classifies cloud events according to a mountain's location relative to surface weather map features for hours when cloud was observed at the sites. Goals were to: (1) understand the extreme variability in cloud water chemistry; (2) analyze the effect of the part-time, non-random sampling protocol (every cloud hour was sampled during several multiple week sampling intensives but no events were sampled for other multiple week periods); and (3) establish meteorological scenarios for cloud water interception models.
