The GV AMTM also revealed a peak amplitude of T' ~ 20 K or larger immediately in the lee of Auckland Island.
Three images of OH (~87 km) temperatures obtained with the AMTM at Lauder at 30-min intervals are shown in Figs.
Real-time support for the project including tracking of, and interactions with, the GV utilizing the DEEPWAVE field catalog and the EOL/Research Aviation Facility (RAF) Aeros and catalog maps tools for displaying real-time aircraft position, flight-level data displays, satellite and model data overlays, dropsonde launches and plots, and lidar and AMTM data sharing.

Three assays had to be excluded from the AMTM because of a statistically significant bias (phosphate, triglycerides, uric acid), and the pooled manufacturer/laboratory data for one LDL cholesterol assay suggested a 15% bias; however, this needs confirmation (see below).
Laboratory AMTM performance sometimes showed a large difference between laboratories for all estimates.
With regard to using the AMTM instead of REF, our study gave conclusive evidence to support that AMTM is a reasonable and cost-saving alternative, at least for the analytes we examined here.
