ESPO personnel preparing for TC-4
NASA's Tropical, Cloud and Climate Coupling mission (TC4) is completing final preparations for its July 2-Aug 17 deployment. The TC4 science meeting was held in April and a Forecasting and Flight Planning meeting in May. Preparations of the sites in both Costa Rica and Panama are well underway for the 3 aircraft (NASA's DC-8, WB-57 and ER-2) and over 250 people expected.

Some Earth Science Project Office (ESPO) personnel left for Panama at the end of last week for the final set up of the radar and research trailer there. Additional ESPO personnel will depart in the next week to support integration of the WB-57 in Houston, DC-8 in Sacramento and ER-2 at DFRC. The first ESPO members will arrive in Costa Rica, July 2, for set up. There will be a press conference and press release from Headquarters, June 27, to kick off the mission.
