The campaign will be implemented under the NASA-funded Earth Venture airborne mission, DISCOVER-AQ (Deriving Information on Surface Conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality). The campaign will employ NASA aircraft to make a series of flights, with scientific instruments on board to measure gaseous and particulate pollution, during a month period in September 2013 in and near Houston, Texas. The instrument spatial distribution encompasses a 120 km long by 100 km wide region.
Starting in May 2013, DRAGON-USA Houston instrument deployments will occur in and around the Houston, Texas metropolitan region to the Gulf of Mexico (Figure 1) with approximately fifteen regionally distributed instruments in support of NASA DISCOVER-AQ P3-B and King Air air quality research flights occurring in September 2013.
