Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Launched today despite some less than optimal forecasts. Operated over the Davis Straits southwest of Sisimiut out to approximately 100 NM. Multiple layered clouds and prevailing hazy conditions allowed lidar wind profiles up to 12,500 ft MSL while operating over scattered to broken stratus clouds but underneath high cirrus clouds. While we didn't fly the anticipated complete flight plan, we found a distinctive area to operate on the route and stayed there. Next flight scheduled for Saturday 11-8, expecting a trip to southern Greenland to look at expected higher winds.
