Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Out and back from Ellington field TX. Gulf of Mexico convection genesis mission. Initial boundary layer legs to central gulf for marine cumulus. Flew boundary legs initially and proceeded to mid level phase of cumulus development where DC-8 had multiple crossing legs. Initial plan to under fly AURA was cancelled because there was no visible cloud buildup under the swath. Coordinated short time with SPEC LEAR at mid level in central Gulf. Coordinated with ER-2 for sampling. Finished with short boundary run upon return to Ellington.
