1 Flight Plans – in development Mission typeMission detailsAircraft and roles Cross Section Missions (see also Figs. X.3)  5 – 6 flights for C-130 (~50 research hours)  9 hour duration (C-130)  10 min legs (below, in and above clouds, approx. 12 each)  Profiles up to 4km  Night missions: Take–off: 3-4 am; Land: noon-1pm (local time)  Flight track: along 20°S (transit from Arica to 72  W, 20  S then along 20  S to  W)  Each C-130 flight to include RHB Co-sampling (30-40 minutes)  C-130 alone  BAe-146 alone  C-130 and BAe-146 together  Dornier may cosample (overfly) during start or end of missions  G-1 may cosample during end of mission POC-Drift Missions (see also Fig. X.4)  5 – 6 flights for C-130 (~50 research hours)  9 hour duration (C-130)  Take-off: 10 am; Land: 7 pm (local time)  Flight track: variable depending upon POC location  Chiefly C-130 alone  Occasionally BAe-146 or G-1 but separately Stacked cloud/radiation Missions (see also Fig. X.5)  Daytime flights only.  Flight track: near-coastal zone, horizontal legs between fixed points  Chiefly BAe-146 and Dornier 228  G-1 may also participate Coastal zone cloud sampling Missions (see also Figs. X.6)  Single-aircraft missions  Mostly daytime flights  Flight track: Typically horizontal legs and some profiles sampling subcloud, cloud and FT  Chiefly G-1 and Twin Otter  Some BAe-146 Multi-flight quasi- Lagrangian Mission (see also Fig. X.7)  Multi-aircraft (sequentially)  Flight track: as for POC-drift mission  Aircraft flights spaced by 6-12 hours (requires intense planning)  One crossing POC boundary; a possible second mission in polluted near-coastal airmass  Twin Otter/G-1 (Flight 1); BAe- 146 (Flight 2); C-130 (Flight 3) Test/Inter- comparisons (see also Fig. X.8)  3 – 4 flights (<20 research hours)  4 hour duration  Flight track: In near-coastal region, subcloud (side-by-side), in-cloud (sequential), and FT (side-by-side) intercomparison legs  Two or more aircraft  Cosampling between C-130 and RHB (as part of Cross-Section Missions)
