ACTRIS - Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research InfraStructure Network

ACTRIS 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".

We part of ACTRIS since the beginning of the network, Apr. 2011, offering trans-national access to infrastructure and participating to networking and joint research activities (P.I. Dr. Doina Nicolae).
