ORACLES - P-3 Orion - WFF 09/24/16 Science Report

This was a coastal flight, going farther north (to 8 S) than any other ORACLES 2016 flight. We went along 11 E to sample an intense young plume forecast by WRF. We did find the plume, and this flight will be very useful for aerosol properties in the FT. The MBL was complicated by the presence of 2 or 3 layers of cloud, and we encountered intermediate-level clouds high in the plume. These complicate the radiation measurements as well as the FT/MBL exchange.

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.
