Fennec -The Saharan Climate System was a NERC consortium project 2010-2012 lead by the University of Oxford and involving the Universities of Leeds, Reading, Sussex and the Met Office.
The aim of Fennec was to quantify and model boundary layer and aerosol processes over the Saharan 'heat low' region, the greatest dust region during summer. This is the most ambitious project ever to observe the Saharan climate system and the role of dust aerosols, involving a unique surface and aircraft field campaign with the FAAM BAe-146.
