ICECAPS-ACE: Integrated Characterization of Energy, Clouds, Atmospheric state, and Precipitation at Summit, Greenland - Aerosol Cloud Experiment
Since 2010, the ICECAPS project has been monitoring cloud-atmosphere-energy interactions at Summit Station, in the centre of the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS), using a comprehensive suite of ground-based remote sensing instruments and twice daily radiosonde profiles. In 2018, the Aerosol Cloud Experiment (ACE) expansion of ICECAPS saw the addition of a new series of instruments to measure surface aerosol concentrations and turbulent heat fluxes over the ice sheet. Combined with the original ICECAPS instrumentation, the ACE instruments allow for the study of cloud-aerosol-energy interactions over the central GrIS. ICECAPS-ACE is jointly funded by the Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) and US National Science Foundation (NSF). NE/S00906X/1
