ACCLIP field campaign investigates monsoon-climate connections
Research aircraft probes impacts of chemicals redistributed by the Asian monsoon
During August 2022, two research aircraft will allow a team of international scientists to study how the Asian summer monsoon — one of the largest and most important meteorological patterns in the world — affects atmospheric chemistry and global climate.
The Asian Summer Monsoon Chemical and CLimate Impact Project (ACCLIP) is supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and co-led by NSF’s National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and NASA. It will be based out of the Osan U.S. Air Base in South Korea.
