MET: Mass and Energy Transport


The Mass and Energy Transport (M. E. T) project focused on atmospheric observations over the Pacific Ocean, west of the Mount Sutro Tower in San Francisco. It also studied the process of quantifying the transport of mass and energy through hydrostatically stable atmospheric layers. The QueenAir, B-80 aircraft flew different patterns calculated in order to develop a vertical cross-section of pertinent parameters through the inversion, and also made vertical soundings during ascent.
