Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:The first research flight was planned for an OCO-2 glint satellite underpass, but due to weather off SC coast and science team concerns about the laser performance, we switched to a simple flight over water in the warning areas. Here the weather was clear once past ATLIC the data was taken at various altitudes from 30K – 15K. Overflights of DELPP intersection on AR-9 were performed at multiple altitudes including a spiral down from 15K to 100’ AGL.
