Forward-Looking Digital Camera Imagery

Summary

During CONTRAST (CONvective TRansport of Active Species in the Tropics), the NSF/NCAR GV HIAPER (Gulfstream-V High-performance Instrumented Airborne Platform for Environmental Researchflew a forward-looking digital camera for in-flight video capture. Individual photo (JPEG) images were captured once per second during flights. Images taken after dark have been stripped from this archive. The remaining images have been combined into hour long tarfiles running from zero minutes zero seconds (or the start time of the first file) to 23 minutes 59 seconds (or the end time of the last file) after each hour. Note that the first and last tarfile for each flight will contain less than a full hour of imagery. Directory files returned with each order give the contents of each corresponding tar file. Note: Downward, Left, and Right-looking images can be found in the companion datasets.
