Global Atmospheric Composition and Climate Change Research
EUROPE's SOLUTION FOR GLOBAL ATMOSPHERE MONITORING

  . . . after the D-Check, measurement flights will resume out of Munich Airport in August . . .
CARIBIC is an innovative scientific project to study and monitor important chemical and physical processes in the Earth´s atmosphere. Detailed and extensive measurements are made during long distance flights. We deploy an airfreight container with automated scientific apparatus which are connected to an air and particle (aerosol) inlet underneath the aircraft. We use an Airbus A340-600 from Lufthansa since December 2004.
The CARIBIC project is integrated in IAGOS - www.iagos.org
