  • McComiskey was part of a NOAA–University of Colorado team that went to an extremely isolated part of Alaska known as Oliktok Point to demonstrate the feasibility of using unmanned aerial system (UAS) platforms to collect detailed information about clouds, aerosols, and radiation. In the top-panel plot, temperature measurements collected by a UAS (inside lines) and a ground-based instrument are compared. The bottom panel compares temperature measurements (dots) collected by the UAS with those outputted by a model used for sea ice forecasting.
