Funding Source:Barry Lefer - NASA - SMD - ESD Tropospheric Composition Program
Purpose of Flight:Science
Miles Flown:2752 miles
Comments:After take-off, proceeded to initial target, Nevada Mountain fire near Great Falls, MT. Did not sample due to significant overcast and weather in vicinity of fire and plume. Headed to next target, Ridge Top fire located 150 miles to the east. Observed pyro cumulus cloud, but small plume due to lack of wind. Samples downwind showed little chemistry, but as we proceeded became heavily concentrated. Made several in-situ passes transecting the plume between 12-18K feet, and a remote sensing passes at 25K and 30K feet. The third target was the Lick Creek and Micah fires near Coeur D’Alene, ID. Made several in-situ passes transecting the plume between 10-11K feet, and remote sensing passes at 25K and 29K feet. Flight was ended early due to inop TAWS (landing required prior to night fall) discovered preflight.
