The DC-8 and ER-2 flew a coordinated mission over Boulder, Co. to sample a wave-cloud and study the effects of the DC-8 exhaust and contrails on the wave-cloud. The DC-8 flew in and out of the wave-cloud while the ER-2 flew above. Measurements were coordinated with the NOAA-14 satellite overpass at 4 UTC.


Wave Structure (96502)
In the following gif images, several fields are plotted versus distance along DC-8 flight tracks upwind of the wave-cloud. Plots are shown for each of the 4 legs aligned with the wind. The fields plotted are:

The DC-8, T-39 and B757 flew a coordinated mission north of Albuquerque, NM. to sample in and near a wave-cloud and the B757 emissions. The DC-8 sampled the B757 exhaust, not closer than ten miles. The T-39 d B757 exhaust sampling after both aircraft left the New Mexico airspace while DC-8 continued wave-cloud sampling.
