Field Experiments


In the years 1995 and 1996 two joint field experiments were carried out at the Kleiner Feldberg in the Taunus (FELDEX 95) and over the North Sea (NORDEX 96). These experiments have been performed by several german research groups within the framework of the Sonderforschungsbereich 233 of the DFG (German Research Foundation, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft).

The measurements of trace gases, aerosols, and hydrometeors at the ground were supported by airborne measurements in and out of clouds. For both experiments enviscope took responsibility for the scientific equipment of one aircraft, and the planning and performance of the airborne measurements.

Additional information on NORDEX 96 can be obtained from the Institute for Atmospheric Physics of the University of Mainz (IPA).
