P-3 In-situ

The shell script p3insituproc.sh made four corrections to the original .std files for each mission and created the Candis format .insitu files and the netCDf format .nc files.

  1. A corrected groundspeed, incorporating the low pass filtered gps groundspeed and the high pass filtered ins groundspeed was substituted for the pure ins groundspeed in the wind calculation.
  2. The air velocity relative to the aircraft was scaled by a true airspeed correction factor.
  3. Special correction for mission 2 (010905i) in which gps dropped out for part of the flight.
  4. The temperature was reduced to match the C-130 temperature by the formula cta = ta - dt where dt = dt1 + (dt2 - dt1)*(ps - p1)/(p2 - p1). (The values of these constants are in the script.)
