Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:-- Accomplished 12 of 14 lines today over Tanana River(4)/Yukon River (8 of 10). Had several issues that limited our available time. Lost air conditioning fan on taxi-out. Return to start location for maintenance analysis. Fan not required for flight according to the MEL. Delayed on ground after second start for back end system abnormalities requiring system reboots. Airborne we had issues with back-end causing restart on one line and delayed start on another. GPS jamming from military exercise caught us off guard, resulting in a 25 minute delay and no GPS for last quarter of a line. Weather was forecast to have isolated thunderstorms after 1300L. Though they materialized they did not prevent data collection or impact recovery. Weather forecast was increasing thunderstorm activity for the next two days.
