Aerosol Direct Radiative Impact Experiment (ADRIEX): In-situ airborne atmospheric measurements and atmospheric model data
The Aerosol Direct Radiative Impact Experiment (ADRIEX) was a joint UK Met Office/Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)/UK Royal Society/University of Oslo project aiming at improving our understanding of the radiative effects of anthropogenic aerosol and gases (ozone and methane) in the troposphere.
The project is based on an airborne field campaign (August-September 2004) using the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) aircraft. The flights were based in Treviso (Italy) and covered areas over Northern Italy, the Adriatic Sea and between Northern Italy and the West coast of the Black Sea. The ADRIEX archive includes forecast trajectories and other products to support ADRIEX flight plans (computed using European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) wind fields) and Aerosol Concentrations collected aboard the FAAM Bae-146 aircraft in August and September 2004.
