CONTRAST

CONvective TRansport of Active Species in the Tropics (CONTRAST) will quantify how convection redistributes atmospheric gases in the tropical atmosphere. Observations will be obtained by the NSF/NCAR Gulfstream-V (GV) aircraft from a deployment in Guam during Jan and Feb 2014. The GV will conduct a series of flights dedicated to CONTRAST goals as well as a number of other flights conducted in concert with the high altitude NASA ATTREX Global Hawk (GH) aircraft and the low altitude British CAST BAe-146 aircraft. The BAe-146, GV, and GH will together span the marine boundary layer to the tropical lower stratosphere, providing unprecedented detail on the composition of the tropical atmosphere.
