Flight Time:6 hours
Log Number:142003PI:Mathew Schwaller
Funding Source:Mathew Schwaller - NASA - SMD - ESD GPM Program Manager
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Our initial objective was to observe some convection forming off the Carolina Coast - however, after take-off the ER-2 headed north to observe a storm forming east of the Charlotte area. The storm turned out to be an excellent target allowing data to be collected over ground stations, a fortunate coordinated ER-2/storm/GPM overpass at 2316Z. A couple of ER-2/Citiation overpasses were accomplished as well. Intruments functioned nominally, with exception of COSMIR experiencing 3 R1 failures and potential recording issues (under investigation). All aircraft systems functioned well.
