Comments: Instruments: AOP, PALMS, LARGE, HDSP2, DASH SP, ISAF(Inop.), HRAMS, TDLIF, GTCIMS, CITCIMS, PTRMS, DIAL, NOyO3, DACOM, DLH, COLAS, SAGA, AVOCET, ATHOS, DFGAS, MMS, SPEC (CPI, 2DS, HVPS, FDCP – sensor heads removed), WAS, SSFR, BBR, RPI, CAFS Science flight cooperative with the NCAR GV in the Texas pan handle and WNW Oklahoma area in the vicinity of convective weather. Depart Salina and transit to storm area performing instrument inter-comparison work with the GV while in route at FL140 and through descent to FL060. Transit altitudes out of SLN included time at FL150, FL140 & FL060. “L” patterns around cell area were flown at FL140, FL060, & 3200 msl sampling storm inflow atmosphere. Overflew DOE ARM (CART Site) facility in NW Oklahoma and spiral climbed to altitude over this site starting at 2,200 agl and toping at FL340. Descend to 1,000 agl and transition to “L” patterns around convective weather in Texas pan handle area sampling at 1,000 agl, FL050, FL 090 & FL150. Descend to FL050 and then spiral climb to FL360. Climb to FL400 for instruments functional check. Return to Salina. NCAR GV participated at high altitude over storms during this same period.
