Auf dem Foto sieht man sie auf der Beobachtungsplattform des Meteorologischen Instituts München wo sie gerade den hyperspektralen Wolken-Imager specMACS für Messungen vorbereitet. specMACS hat während der ML-Cirrus Kampagne im Frühjahr 2014 von der Dachplattform der LMU München aus gemessen. Diese Messungen wurden mit in-situ Messungen des Forschungsflugzeuges HALO koordiniert und lieferten einen wertvollen Datensatz für Linda Forsters Doktorarbeit.
