SIO Airborne Flight (9/20/2017)

SIO Melville lab had another successful four hour flight today. We overflew a Sally Ride transect before doing the usual cross-shore low altitude and alongshore high altitude legs. Still plenty of wind and waves on site and mostly clear skies with a few developing clouds at the end of the flight.

L to R: Point Sal conditions today, sediment plumes in front of Lion’s Head radar station, modulation of surface wave field by IWs.

L to R: Developing clouds near the end of the flight, surf zone near Oceano, cloud formation extending from Point Purisima.
