ALOHA-90 project description

Airborne Lidar and Observations of Hawaiian Airglow FY 1990


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.
