3.0 SCIENCE TEAM

The TRACE-P Science Team is comprised of the Principal Investigators, Mission Scientist, Deputy Mission Scientist, and Mission Meteorologists, who were selected in response to NASA Research Announcement NRA-00-OES-01. The GTE Program and Project Managers are ex officio members. The Science Team is co-chaired by the Mission Scientists or, in their absence, the Mission Meteorologists. The Mission Meteorologists will also be responsible for meteorological forecasting for the flight operations and for determining the origins and forecasting destinations of the air masses encountered during the flights. The Mission Scientists and Mission Meteorologists have data analyses and reporting responsibilities.

The Science Team is responsible for: science systems operation and performance; detailed flight mission design; identifying systems support requirements; data analyses and reporting; defining data handling, schedules, and protocol procedures (within NASA guidelines); and data submission to the GTE Data Archive.

The Science Team will determine its own methods and protocol for interactions among team members aboard each aircraft to achieve overall mission objectives. The Science Team and the GTE Project Office have developed detailed plans as outlined herein to conduct the TRACE-P Expedition and meet the mission objectives presented in Section 2.0. The Science Team has also established a data management and data protocol plan (Section 6.0) that will promote the timely publication and dissemination (Section 8.0) of scientific results in accordance with data handling policies of the NASA Tropospheric Chemistry Program. These policies generally require that data from GTE experiments be made available to the public after a brief period of exclusive use by Science Teams for validation of the data. As indicated in the TRACE-P NRA (00-OES-01), a period of six months has been established for TRACE-P for this purpose.

Members of GTE TRACE-P Science Team are listed in Table 3.0-1.
