Green Cube II Data

Recovery team data, flight video, etc coming soon! Look here for a sample video clip.

Launch Team Thermistor Plots

These plots show the ambient temperature in degrees Celsius outside each payload. The data begins several minutes before launch and ends when the launch team loses radio contact with the payloads. Apogee for each balloon occurs at the peak around 80 minutes after launch. We hope to match temperature oscillations, like those of payload 1 starting around 35 minutes into flight, with GPS oscillations (see below) to provide evidence of possible gravity wave activity.

Launch Team GPS Plots

These graphs show the wind speed plotted against altitude for the upleg of both flights. The first graph shows the entire ascent and the others are 5km pieces of the first one.
