Vocals regional experiment rex1

VOCALS Regional Experiment (REx)

  • VOCALS-Rex will collect datasets required to address a set of issues that are organized into two broad themes:

  • Aerosol-cloud-drizzle interactions in the marine boundary layer (MBL) and the physicochemical and spatiotemporal properties of aerosols

  • Chemical and physical couplings between the upper ocean, the land, and the atmosphere.
