[ACG41-P04] Oxygenated Compounds in the Tropical Atmosphere–Variability and Exchanges (OCTAVE) project: Investigating the impact of marine/biogenic sources to OVOCs, halogens, and aerosols in the tropical marine atmosphere
Keywords:Marine atmospheric aerosols, OVOCs, Tropical marine atmosphere, Halogen chemistry
To improve our estimate of global budget of key OVOCs and their role in oxidants and aerosols originated from marine sources, international intensive field measurement campaign is planned to be conducted at the Maïdo observatory (2,200m a.s.l) in Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean. The measurement campaign will be made in March-June 2018, with integrated approach combining in situ/off-line measurements, satellite retrievals, and modelling. During the project, aerosol measurements aim to evaluate the contribution of marine/biogenic sources to submicron organic aerosols under the conditions of marine boundary layer and free troposphere. Detailed scientific research plan and goal of this project will be discussed in this presentation.
