A workshop was held at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) during February of 1982 to consider the scientific needs for research aircraft in the next decade and the impacts of these needs upon the fleet of aircraft that the Research Aviation Facility (RAF) supports for the atmospheric sciences research community. The workshop was attended by a group of atmospheric scientists who represented the major research interests supported by RAF. The attendees discussed scientific priorities for research in the next 10 years, the types of new instrumentation expected within the next decade, and the operational requirements and aircraft fleet that would be required to serve these scientific goals.
