Funding Source:Hal Maring - NASA - SMD - ESD Radiation Science Program
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Transit in Gulf of Mexico to Tropical Storm INGRID. Coordinated much of the flight with ER-2. GLOBALHAWK was scheduled but did not get airborne. Operated within close proximity of southernmost portion of the storm system in the Yucatan area. Sampled mid level cloud structures. Located good structures to the north of the storm. Coordinated racetrack with ER-2 sampling above. Proceeded further east and north and examined ocean convection buildup on a developing storm for numerous passes into the convection. Comms challenging in eastern Gulf so relayed via ER-2 and com air. Proceeded on north in the boundry layer towards Ellington.
