The specific tasks of this grant were to operate the University of Washingtons Convair C-131A research aircraft in the arctic in support of LeadEx, to analyze data collected aboard the aircraft, and to provide theis data to other LeadEX investigators. the Convair C-131A made 18 flights totaling 70 hours over the ice pack north of Deadhorse, Alaska, in April 1992. Data was collected on 1 Particles and gases in the air 2 The radiative properties of the ice surface, leads and ice crystal clouds 3 Various methods for the remote detection of leads and surface temperatures and 4 Heat fluxes from leads.
