The Arctic is especially vulnerable to climate change since it is warming more than twice the global average. Aerosols and clouds play a major role regulating the energy transport from and to space. Within NASCENT 2019-2020 campaign (Ny-Ålesund AeroSol Cloud ExperimeNT) , we will study in depth microphysical and chemical properties of aerosols and clouds using a variety of novel instruments. These intensified observations are linked to the MOSAiC year (2019-2020).
- September 2019: Packing the CIMS and other instruments to be shipped to Ny-Ålesund.
- June 2019: Installation of the bioaerosol sensor and calibration of instruments up at Zeppelin Observatory.
