The March 10-April 30 flights are part of the second Pacific Exploratory Mission to the Tropics (PEM-Tropics B). Nine principal investigators from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) are participating in the mission, which is part of the Global Tropospheric Experiment sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). NCAR's primary sponsor is the National Science Foundation.
