EOSS #204: NOAA LASP Flight - MARCH 7th, 2015 Recap

EOSS204 was the second EOSS flight for the NOAA/LASP Tropopause Temperature Profiler which is designed to use an optical fiber to make in-situ measurements of temperature near the tropopause.  The idea is to lower a length of optical fiber from the balloon payload and interrogate it by sending laser pulses down the fiber and determine temperature from the Raman scattering within the fiber.  The first time this was tried on EOSS199, the fiber broke after about 50 meters of fiber were reeled out.  The fiber that time was 200 microns in diameter with no protective coating.  This time the glass

EOSS December 9th Face to Face meeting at

Edge of Space Sciences has been invited back up to Boulder for EOSS night at CU. This is a great evening for EOSS, as we get to hear from some of the students at that have flown with us this year and get updates on programs that were tested on our flights.  

Welcome to the NEW EOSS.ORG

Welcome to the NEW EOSS.ORG.  As you can see, we are building a new and improved web presence for EOSS.  After 20 years, our webmaster Rick, N0KKZ, has decided to take a step back from running the site.  EOSS owes Rick a tremendous debt, and we really can not express enough our gratitude.
