Today we flew “George VI 2” as our first science flight of the campaign. The instruments performed well despite some inconveniences early on, but overall the day was a success.
We encountered more low-lying clouds/fog than expected which had an impact on the amount of ATM data we could collect, but this particular flight relied more on data recorded from the Gravimeter for the majority of the lines. The lines designed with the ATM in mind had much clearer weather, which worked out well for us.
Tomorrow we will attempt another flight, with the destination to be decided upon in the AM. Until tomorrow,
