Comments: 
Flew two passes of Ivanpah Playa (Railroad Valley) in Nevada. Then flew over Lake Tahoe and down coast from San Francisco over Monterey and cut inland around Cambria to fly over Bakersfield AERONET site. Also flew over the Soberanes and Sand fires, both of which erupted on Friday. The eMAS controller kept tripping off early in the flight – multiple resets by the pilot did not fix the problem. All other instruments working as expected.
