Airborne atmospheric research at UW: status and vision for a new aircraft

Drs. Al Rodi, Bart Geerts, and Jeff French

University of Wyoming


The UW King Air, a NSF-funded national facility, is over 40 years old and needs to be replaced in the foreseeable future. This represents a unique opportunity to look ahead and examine needs and opportunities for airborne atmospheric research in the lower troposphere in the next few decades, in service of the University, the State of Wyoming, and the nation. Here we present a status report of the current aircraft, and an updated vision for a new manned research aircraft. We will be seeking input from the audience about this vision.
