TORERO

Long name: 
Tropical Ocean tRoposphere Exchange of Reactive halogen species and Oxygenated VOC
Dates: 
January 15, 2012 to February 26, 2012
Location: 
Costa Rica; Chile
ACOM Instruments and Forecasting Tools: 
Aerolaser VUV
HARP-Actinic Flux
HARP-Irradiance

Platform(s): 
NSF/NCAR GV
Description: 

The scientific objective of the TORERO project was to study the release, transport and fate of reactive halogen gases and oxidized VOCs, and their effect on the atmospheric oxidation capacity in the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean during the season of high biological ocean productivity. The project timeframe was coincident with complementary research vessel projects in the same area, however TORERO science was not dependent on concurrent ship operations.
