Funding Source:Ramesh Kakar - NASA - SMD - ESD Atmospheric Dynamics and Precipitation Program
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:This was the first flight following a DAWN instrument focal length modification over the weekend and a down day. MTHP was reinstalled prior to this flight also. This flight was similar to Flt 1191 in that GOES 16 imagery was used near realtime aboard the aircraft with science contributors on the ground analyzing other products and deliberating via internet relay chat. A preplanned box pattern was prepared for flight plan filing purposes but the entire flight route after entering the Gulf of Mexico was composed as it occurred. Kudos to Jacksonville and Houston ARTCC for accommodating NASA science.
