NASA Global Hawk flight over Tropical Storm Nadine – Sept. 19-20, 2012

NASA’s Global Hawk continues to sample Tropical Storm Nadine. The Global Hawk took off on Sept. 19th from Wallops Island, VA (around 2PM EDT) and return 25 hours later on Sept. 20th.  This is part of their field campaign called Hurricane Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3). HRD scientists processed the dropwindsondes for this flight. The unmanned aircraft flew the flight pattern and launch dropwindsondes at the points shown here. They are planning to continue to fly over Nadine again taking off tomorrow.
