ACE-SPACE: Antarctic Circumnavigation Experiment: Study of Preindustrial-like Aerosol Climate Effects
- Start date: 1 November 2016
- End date: 1 November 2018
- Funder: Swiss Polar Institute
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.
