Description
The Lightweight Airborne Chromatograph Experiment (LACE) is a
two-channel gas chromatograph (GC) that is designed for
operation on balloons and remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) up to
32 km in altitude. LACE, similar to Airborne Chromatograph for
Atmospheric Trace Species (ACATS), is a joint collaborative
project between two National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) labs: the Climate Monitoring and
Diagnostics Laboratory (CMDL) and Aeronomy Laboratory (AL) in
Boulder, CO. The first test flights of this new instrument will
occur during a Stratospheric Tracers for Atmospheric Transport
(STRAT) deployment located at Fort Sumner, NM in June 1996. The
design and construction of LACE is supported in part by the
Environmental Research Aircraft and Sensor Technology (ERAST)
Program of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration
(NASA) and the Atmospheric Chemistry Project of NOAA's Climate
and Global Change Program (C&GP). The operation of LACE for
STRAT mission is s upported in part by the High Speed Research
Program (HSRP) of NASA, Upper Atmospheric Research Program of
NASA, and the Atmospheric Chemistry Project of NOAA's C&CP.
