Supplementary data for "Trajectories of long duration balloons launched from McMurdo Station in Antarctica"

  • Christopher P Geach (Creator)



These files contain trajectory information for long-duration balloons launched from McMurdo Station in Antarctica. These balloons carry payloads addressing a wide range of scientific questions. We have analyzed these trajectories in order to estimate the expected range of trajectories to aid in mission planning for future balloon experiments from McMurdo.

The dataset consists of 40 trajectory files for long-duration balloon flights launched from McMurdo Station in Antarctica, each containing latitude, longitude, altitude and time since launch.
