HALO beim Auftanken zum ersten wissenschaftliche Flug von Oberpfaffenhofen
Monsoon Affects Greenhouse Gases
Jülich/Shannon, 18 September 2017 – Only a few days ago, the Asian monsoon, which is particularly strong this year, had catastrophic consequences in India. Its destructive effects, however, reach far further than the Indian subcontinent, in part due to the transport of greenhouse gases. Over the next five weeks, a team of atmospheric researchers will investigate this transport as part of the measuring campaign WISE. Twelve measurement flights will be conducted with the high-altitude research aircraft HALO. It is hoped that the measurements will permit insights into transport and mixing processes in the atmosphere.
