DACCIWA regional flight campaign 2016

The Dynamics-aerosol-chemistry-cloud interactions in West Africa (DACCIWA) seeks to investigate the influence of anthropogenic and natural emissions on the atmospheric composition over South West Africa and to assess their impact on human health, the ecosystem, and agricultural productivity.

Funded by the European Union, DACCIWA is a large project (~€10M) with project partners in Germany, France, UK, Switzerland, Ghana and Nigeria. 

The research campaign will undertake a range of activities ranging from flying research aircraft over West Africa, to running complex numerical models of the composition of the atmosphere.
