March 15, 1990 to April 16, 1990
Project Location: 
Maui, Hawaii
Project Description: 

During this project, an airborne Rayleigh/Na lidar, airglow imager, and airglow spectrometer were used to study stratosphere/mesosphere dynamics, polar mesospheric clouds (PMCs) and sporadic layering phenomena in the upper atmosphere. These flights were designed to study gravity waves and sporadic Na layers. Numerous ground-based instruments and UARS provided correlative data during the campaign.
