Picture Galleries. Zeppelin NT Flying for Climate Research

A team of about fifteen researchers from Jülich, Switzerland, Estonia, and the USA accompanied the Zeppelin NT on its three missions. Starting from Friedrichshafen, they first flew towards the Netherlands with the final destination of Cabauw and then back to Friedrichshafen (western route). In 2012, the second mission took the zeppelin to Italy for more than five weeks for measurement flights in the Po valley and over the Adriatic (southern route). Finally, the third mission in spring 2013 went to northern Europe for two months heading for Hyytiälä in Finland (northern route).
