Observations & Modelling of the Tropical Tropopause Layer
This programme aims to enable UK participation in exciting and high impact unmanned aerial vehicle enabled science, through collaboration with NASA partners.
The programme will study the chemical and physical properties of the tropical tropopause layer (TTL) and the impacts of the TTL in controlling the composition of the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere.
The research will be delivered in partnership with NASA, through collaboration with the NASA Earth Venture Airborne Tropical Tropopause Experiment (ATTREX) mission, deploying the NASA Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) (pictured above) and the NERC/Met Office FAAM BAe 146 atmospheric research aircraft.
