2012 RP FLIP Cruise
 

The R/P FLIP (Floating Instrument Platform) is a stable research platform for oceanographic research. FLIP is towed to its operating area in the horizontal position and flipped to the vertical position to become a stable spar buoy with a draft of 300 feet. FLIP is owned by the US Navy and was conceived and developed by the Marine Physical Laboratory (MPL), Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego.

The R/P FLIP conducted a cruise in North Pacific off coast of California in April - May 2012. Eight (8) measurement series spanning 2 days were acquired.

Dr. Magdalena Anguelova from Naval Research Laboratory (Washington D.C.) was the Principal Investigator for aerosol optical depth measurements and conducted measurements onboard.
