ACTRIS - Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research InfraStructure Network
European Commission, 6th Framework Programme
Project type: Research & Organizational Project
Affiliation: Institute of Geophysics, Atmospheric Physics Department
Project realisation: Oct. 11, 2011 - Oct. 11, 2015
ACTRIS (Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research InfraStructure Network) is a European Project aiming at integrating European ground-based stations equipped with advanced atmospheric probing instrumentation for aerosols, clouds, and short-lived gas-phase species. ACTRIS will have the essential role to support building of new knowledge as well as policy issues on climate change, air quality, and long-range transport of pollutants.
ACTRIS is building the next generation of the ground-based component of the EU observing system by integrating three existing research infrastructures EUSAAR, EARLINET, CLOUDNET, and a new trace gas network component into a single coordinated framework. ACTRIS is funded within the EC 7th Framework Programme under "Research Infrastructures for Atmospheric Research".
