This study is a small part of the large-scale Aerosol Characterization Experiment (ACE-2) which aims at studying the effect of European and Sahara aerosols on the climate in the Eastern Atlantic region. By measurements at the coast and on a mountain top in Tenerife, this subproject will identify the aerosol in the marine boundary layer, its mixing with tropospheric aerosols and the resulting climatic effects.
