Southern Hemisphere Marine Aerosol Characterization Experiment (ACE-1) Data at UCAR/JOSS/NOAA/CODIAC

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The Southern Hemisphere Marine Aerosol Characterization Experiment
(ACE-1) was the first in a series of experiments which
characterized the chemical and physical processes controlling the
evolution and properties of atmospheric aerosols and the role in
radiative climate forcing. The field phase of ACE-1 began 1
October 1995 with data collection to support ship and aircraft
latitudinal transects. Intensive operations in the Southern Pacific
Ocean occurred from 15 November to 14 December 1995 from an
operations center in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. Data collection
activities concluded on 25 December 1995.
