NAAMES Field Campaign
View Slideshow »
NAAMES is a five-year investigation to resolve key processes controlling ocean system function, their influences on atmospheric aerosols and clouds and their implications for climate. Information obtained during four targeted ship and aircraft field campaigns, combined with continuous satellite and in situ
ocean sensor measurements, will enable improved predictive capabilities of Earth system processes for management and assessment of ecosystem change. The field campaign took place between November 2015 and April 2018.
