Project: Atmospheric soot carbon and its radiative impact.

01-MAY-96 – 31-DEC-99

A comprehensive study will be conducted of the chemical, physical and optical aerosol characteristics, and of the radiative forcing by aerosols on climate for the eastern Mediterranean and for several sites in tropical/equatorial regions. In order to be able to determine the aerosol absorption coefficient and the concentrations of soot carbon, the purchase of an aethalometer is absolutely necessary.
