Document Title: The NSF/NCAR Gulfstream V research aircraft in flight (DI01270)
Description: The NSF/NCAR Gulfstream V research aircraft provides scientists with insights into the atmosphere and Earth’s natural systems. With a range of 7,000 miles and the capability of carrying 5600 pounds of sensors, this aircraft is on the forefront of scientific discovery. Its range enables scientists to survey remote ocean regions in a single flight to learn more about interactions between the oceans and atmosphere. Capable of flying at altitudes as high as 51,000 feet, the Gulfstream V can collect data at the tops of storms and lower edge of the stratosphere, altitudes out of reach of most research aircraft.
