ORACLES - P-3 Orion - WFF 10/12/18 Science Report

This was a target of opportunity flight to: a) resample boundary layer air first sampled on PRF#07, and b) sample cloud properties across aerosol boundaries.

ORACLES - P-3 Orion - WFF 10/15/18 Science Report

Take –off at 06:58:46UT. During Southbound transit at 18kft, we saw similar situation to Oct 7, i.e. minimal direct contact between smoke and Sc from 3-9S. APR detects heavily precipitating Sc clouds at 5S, in all 3 channels; consistently, SEVIRI shows LWP of > 300 g/m2 . We identified two regions that showed gap (8.5S) and no gap (9.5S) in relative close proximity. Significant drizzle (3-channel APR return) between 11 and 13S. Square spiral at 14S, geometrically thin high smoke loading layer at 13kft, broken Sc.
