Starting in July of 2006, the African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analysis (AMMA) project ran a major field campaign, gathering weather and ocean data from western Africa and nearby waters. The main purpose was to document the inter-seasonal and inter-annual variability of the African Monsoon, where hot, dry air from the Sahara and warm, moist air for […]

As Tropical Storm Erika was 600 km east of the Leeward Islands a NOAA P-3 mission collected airborne Doppler radar data to use in initializing and evaluating model guidance and a Saharan Air Layer Experiment (SALEX) mission. The figure below depicts the aircraft flight track (P-3: yellow line) superposed on the real-time lower fuselage radar and infrared […]
As Tropical Storm Erika was 800 km east of the Leeward Islands a NOAA P-3 and G-IV mission collected airborne Doppler radar data to use in initializing and evaluating model guidance and a Saharan Air Layer Experiment (SALEX) mission. The figure below depicts the aircraft flight track (P-3: yellow line; G-IV: red line) superposed on the real-time […]
OPERATIONS Wednesday, 26 August 2015 NOAA43: Flew a Saharan Air Layer Experiment (SALEX) research mission into Tropical Storm Erika. Take off was at 0600 UTC (2:00AM local) from Barbados. Three HRD scientists were on this flight. UAS Global Hawk: Took off this morning at 7:00AM Eastern from Wallops Island, VA. It will fly a 24 hour research mission over Tropical Storm Erika. This mission […]
