Summary
Abstract: The ABLE missions have been designed specifically to study the rate of
exchange of material between the Earth's surface and its atmospheric
boundary layer, and the processes by which gases and aerosols are
moved between the boundary layer and the 'free' troposphere. These
expeditions are conducted in ecosystems of the world that are known to
exert a major influence ... View entire text
