Project description

Project theme: ACSIS will utilise and develop a range of data sets to develop our atmospheric data products and use these to build up a comprehensive view of structure and variability of atmospheric composition across the North Atlantic.

Science context: Composition data sets will include (i) ozone and its precursors, which provide information of changes in tropospheric oxidizing capacity, (ii) methane, a key greenhouse gas whose budget is poorly understood, and (iii) properties of atmospheric aerosol, a potentially important short-term climate forcer.
