ACE-SPACE: Antarctic Circumnavigation Experiment: Study of Preindustrial-like Aerosol Climate Effects

Primary Investigator: Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland

From December 2016 to March 2017, scientific teams from all over the world boarded the Russian research vessel Akademik Tryoshnikov for an unprecedented expedition around Antarctica. During the Antartic Circumnavigation Expedition (ACE), researchers worked on a number of interrelated fields, from biology to climatology to oceanography, for the future of this continent. In Leeds we have used the aerosol measurements to evaluate our global aerosol models to help reduce uncertainty in aerosol effects on climate.
