On a recent flight of the NSF/NCAR C-130 over these and other peaks in Colorado and New Mexico above), ATD’s Britt Stephens (below) works on a vacuum ultraviolet absorption instrument that makes high-precision measurements of atmospheric oxygen concentrations. With him is RAP’s Vidal Salazar, who is monitoring cloud condensation nuclei.

 

Britt Stephens and Vidal Salazar

The two researchers joined others aboard the C-130 for IDEAS (Instrumentation Development and Education in Airborne Science), a project that seeks to improve the capability of instrumentation for future NSF airborne missions. In addition to NCAR scientists and technicians, IDEAS solicits participation by faculty and students in the university community.
