Suite of Aerosol, Cloud, and Related Data Acquired Aboard P3 During ORACLES 2016

Observations of Aerosols Above Clouds and Their Interactions (ORACLES)

Southern Africa produces almost a third of the Earth’s biomass burning (BB) aerosol particles, yet the fate of these particles and their influence on regional and global climate is poorly understood. ORACLES (ObseRvations of Aerosols above CLouds and their intEractionS) is a five year investigation with three Intensive Observation Periods (IOP) designed to study key processes that determine the climate impacts of African BB aerosols.
