ACTIVATE Conducts Summer 2021 Deployment


In May of 2021, the Aerosol Cloud meteorology Interactions over the western Atlantic Experiment (ACTIVATE) returned to operations for a summer 2021 deployment. This deployment is part of a 5-year field campaign to investigate the atmospheric impacts of marine boundary layer clouds. Pictured are shallow cumulus clouds during a cold air outbreak from the NASA UC-12 King Air from a science flight conducted on March 1, 2020. The King Air flies in coordination with the HU-25 Falcon to acquire in-situ and remote sensing measurements of the atmosphere. More information about ACTIVATE can be obtained from the ASDC’s Data in Action: “Advancing Aerosol-Cloud-Meteorology Knowledge through ACTIVATE.” The ASDC provides all currently available publication-quality data for the first two deployments of ACTIVATE.
