Funding Source:Ramesh Kakar - NASA - SMD - ESD Atmospheric Dynamics and Precipitation Program
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Science flight #12 was flown to the Gulf of Mexico. An east to west ladder pattern with 2.5 deg east-west legs and 1 deg north-south legs. After 2 east-west legs were complete, the 3rd leg was shorted so that aircraft could go direct to point of interest for repeated passes in a propeller pattern. First propeller pattern waypoint showed lack of convection, so a 2nd waypoint was proposed. Convection was found there and multiple passes were made. RTB was performed along 26N with multiple sondes dropped. Nineteen sondes in total were launched with 10 reaching sea surface. All instrument teams reported satisfactory data acquisitions.
