The 2014 ACE satellite validation team is nearly ready for this year’s research trip to PEARL.
We will be travelling to Yellowknife on February 24, then onwards to Eureka, Nunavut on February 25. We’ll be there until March 19. While there, we’ll be working with several instruments to investigate atmospheric chemistry, climate change, ozone depletion, and air quality. To follow our science adventure in Canada’s far North, there are a few places to watch.
There will be regular Twitter posts through the @CREATEArcticSci account. At the moment, I’m posting a couple photos from past campaigns each day as we excitedly approach this year’s trip. Take a look!
A new Instagram account has been started. There’s not much yet, but there will be as the campaign progresses.
In addition to this blog, there is an official campaign website. It will be updated daily during the campaign and have summaries of our work with PEARL instruments, and daily photo albums.
For anyone that didn’t see it, PEARL was featured by the Globe and Mail recently. They had a great story about PEARL and a video (featuring the lidar lab and Emily McCullough, who has been a regular campaign team member for many years).
We hope you’ll follow along. Feel welcome to post comments and share our stories!
