RV Sally Ride Under Steam

S-MODE 04/28/23 Mission Daily Schedule

Plan of the Day for Friday, April 28:

  • Both the B200 and G-III flew today. The optical instruments finally got a very clear day, and the winds were cooperating for DopplerScatt!
  • Continuing to sample in the same area, a small (submesoscale) section of what we refer to as SWOTland, or within the swath of the SWOT satellite.

 Aircraft plan and schedule:
