Depart Salina and transit NW to science area at FL250. Spiral descend to low altitude flight (1000 to 2000 agl) and set up patterns to measure boundary layer chemistry ENE of storm systems flying generally north south patterns with the GLL navigation aid being the southern turnaround point and work ~ 50nm NNE. Spiral climb NNE of storms up to FL380 and then work south to sample anvil clouds to the east of the storms. Sampled at FL360, FL350, FL340, & FL330 where it was determined that FL350 was optimal for remaining in anvil clouds. Positioned to approximate center of anvil cloud area and then exited cloud layer to the east. Transited direct to Salina but stopped descent at FL150 for instrument calibration event for 5 min. and then again at 7,000 msl to perform MMS maneuvers.
