Overview

The T-28 research aircraft participated in the COHMEX project during the summer of 1986. T-28 observations supported investigations of hydrometeor and precipitation evolution in mature storms and the relation of storm electrical activity to precipitation and dynamical processes.

The T-28 also supported investigations of experimental remote sensing systems which were carried on high altitude aircraft.

Important components of the normal data set included hydrometeor, temperature, vertical wind, and electric fields quantities from the interiors of mature storms.

The T-28 made use of a Data General Micronova computer. During the first half of the project, the aircraft carried a PMS 2D-C optical probe. This was replaced with a 2D-P probe for the latter portion of the project.
