Summary
Abstract: The Indian Ocean Experiment (INDOEX) is a focused field experiment in
the Indian Ocean with international participation from the United
States, Europe, and the Indian Ocean Region. INDOEX addresses
questions of climate change that are of high priority and of great
value to the US and the international community. The project's goal is
to study natual and anthropogenic climate forcing by aerosols and
feedbacks on regional and global climate. The three month Intensive
Field Phase (IFP) operated from 1 January through March 1999 with
research aircraft flights and ship cruises conducted during various
times within the IFP. The Operations Center was located in Male,
Maldives. More information on the INDOEX Project can be found at the
