View from the cockpit of HALO over the Amazon region

The ACRIDI­CON mea­sure­ment flights last­ed about sev­en hours. Among oth­er things, the anal­y­ses in­clud­ed how clouds in clean rain­for­est air dif­fer from those found over pol­lut­ed and de­for­est­ed re­gions. The im­age shows the nose boom of the HA­LO (High Al­ti­tude and LOng Range) re­search air­craft as it ap­proach­es a dis­in­te­grat­ing storm.

The ACRIDICON measurement flights lasted about seven hours. Among other things, the analyses included how clouds in clean rainforest air differ from those found over polluted and deforested regions. The image shows the nose boom of the HALO (High Altitude and LOng Range) research aircraft as it approaches a disintegrating storm.
