ORACLES - P-3 Orion - WFF 09/18/16 Science Report

Walvis Bay local flight aiming for youngest, densest plume we could reach. Flew essentially along the coast to a study region along 11.5 E, 10 S to 12 S. Coordinated with ER-2 for 3 overpasses. Found a high, young, dense biomass burning plume, underlain by an older BB plume directly atop a thin but pretty uniform stratocumulus cloud deck. Good opportunities to examine aging issues, mixing patterns, and compare ER-2 remote sensign with in-situ data.

ORACLES - P-3 Orion - WFF 10/19/18 Science Report

Sample near Angola coast of fresh aerosol, but with lower aerosol loading than previous flight. 2 square spirals in similar location, first without clouds, second above overcast. Significant cloud sampling with above-, below-, in-cloud, and sawtooth sampling.
