[16-May-16] The North Atlantic Aerosol and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES) team prepares for the transit flight to St. John's International Airport, where it will reside between science flights in which the C-130 will rendezvous with the R/V Atlantis in the North Atlantic. Their observations, obtained during planned targeted ship and aircraft measurement campaigns, combined with the continuous satellite and in situ ocean sensor records, will enable improved predictive capabilities of Earth system processes and will inform ocean management and assessment of ecosystem change.
