Mario got to fly! Flight #12

ORACLES - P-3 Orion - WFF 09/30/18 Science Report

  • Flight 7:12-14:35UTC
  • High-altitude transit for HSRL
  • Found somewhat broken clouds at ~7.5S. 
  • Radiation wall module components:
    • Spiral in somewhat heavier cloud field.
    • Ramped ascent south-bound to just above cloud.
    • Above, below, then sawtooth in-cloud 2-sawtooth leg. Chose sawtooth to capture variability in microphysics.

{AMS, CCN compromised below 3000’ altitude by PTI leak up until end of cloud legs}
