Project: El Niño Rapid Response
NOAA's Gulfstream IV-SP is supporting a major field campaign to determine key mechanisms affecting El Niño's impacts on the U.S. and their implications for improving NOAA's observational systems, models and predictions. The NOAA El Niño Rapid Response field campaign spans the central and eastern tropical Pacific to California. Multiple types of observing resources will collect measurements from the air, ocean, and ground between January and March of 2016.
