map

The map shows the 24 flights of the NOAA G4 aircraft during the 2005 Winter Storms project. The legend indicates the date when the flight originated in yymmdd (2 digit year, 2 digit month, 2 digit day) format and is color coded.

Only a few of these flights were specifically targeted to study the transport of ozone in the vicinity of the Pacific jet stream. The science objectives of the majority of flights shown here were reconnaissance efforts to assist in West Coast weather forecasting.
