LASP scientists are actively involved in airborne research using a variety of platforms, including NASA (WB-57F, DC-8 and ER-2), National Science Foundation (Gulfstream G-V, C-130) and university (University of Wyoming King Air) aircraft, as well as scientific balloons.
Our recent and current projects include:
- Studies of the formation of the Antarctic “ozone hole” using long-duration stratospheric balloons
- Investigations of wintertime cloud formation and the relationship between cloud properties and snowfall
- Development of instrumentation for high-altitude research aircraft
