Multimedia Gallery - 2011

 

In September 2011, scientists wrapped up the HIPPO project (HIAPER Pole-to-Pole Observations). The three-year series of missions took researchers from the Arctic to the Antarctic aboard the NSF/NCAR Gulfstream V, an advanced research aircraft also known as HIAPER. The real-time observations and air sample flasks gathered en route form the most extensive airborne measurements of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and particles to date.

video icon Inside the NSF/NCAR Gulfstream V research jet during HIPPO project flights. Researchers control, adjust, and monitor sensors, swap filled air sample flasks for new empty ones. Researcher prepares dry ice, adds it to chiller. Researcher explains dry ice water trap to keep water out of samples. Brief interview with Steven Wofsy (Harvard University, see full interview, below). (©UCAR. QuickTime, 2:38) News media terms of use*

G-V leaves NCAR's Research Aviation Facility in Boulder, Colorado; takes off against Denver skyline. Landing in Anchorage; tow to hangar. Research prepares dry ice for use chilling onboard instruments. Technicians check instrument pods on wings. Technician explains Data Sampling Module, one of seven minicomputers used to send signals from wing-mounted sensors to monitors on board. G-V positioned for takeoff and taxiing on Anchorage runway, mountains in background. (©UCAR. QuickTime, 4:29) News media terms of use*
