Isaac – Pictures from the field

Here are some pictures from the NOAA42 mission into Tropical Storm Isaac. These pictures are from the Sunday 4 PM (1600 take off) flight, 26 August 2012. We had the pleasure of having Drs. Jane Lubchenco (NOAA Administrator) and Robert Detrick (Assistant Administrator of NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR)) join the flight to learn first hand about the science that is conducted on the aircraft.
