Campaign diary on 30 August 2008
After the mission today, the team was somewhat frustrated. Again no wind lidar observations and the observational coverage of
the DIAL was much lower than expected based on model forecasts. After getting over the disppointment however, it seems that the
DIAL water vapour observations have a lower coverage than expected, but are still very interesting. In addition, there are good
water vapour observations. The ET group wants to perform a follow-on mission tomorrow, where I am afraid that observational
coverage could be even worse than today. Given the calm typhoon conditions however, it was decided to perform the mission as we
need to take every opportunity that we get.
