Airborne Study Surveys Greenhouse Gases in World Tour

The first deployment of one of NASA's most ambitious research studies of Earth's atmosphere will take place this July and August. The Atmospheric Tomography mission will take off aboard the agency's DC-8 flying laboratory on a 26-day journey from the North Pole down the Pacific Ocean to New Zealand and then across to the tip of South America and back north up the Atlantic Ocean to the Arctic.

In Situ Measurements of Aerosol Microphysical Properties

Five instruments, two nucleation-mode aerosol size spectrometers (NMASS; Williamson et al., 2018), two ultra-high sensitivity aerosol spectrometers (UHSAS; Kupc et al., 2018), and a laser aerosol spectrometer (LAS) comprise the AMP package. The AMP package provides particle size distributions with up to one-second time resolution for dry aerosol particles between 0.003 and 4.8 µm in diameter. Details of methods, uncertainties, and data products from the AMP package are in Brock et al. (2019). During ATom, the instruments were used to investigate how particles in the remote atmosphere influence climate by examining the origin of small particles in the remote atmosphere and their growth to sizes where they can affect clouds and the sources, characteristics, and distribution of soil dust and sea-spray particles, and 3) the importance long-range transport from human and natural sources on background aerosol properties.
