ACROSS Home Page

ACROSS is a project supported by the Make Our Planet Great Again initiative that enables focused research on the interactions of urban and biogenically-influenced air masses. A highlight of this project is a comprehensive, multi-platform field measurement campaign.

  • When:
  • 13 June – 25 July 2022 (ground intensive)
  • 13 June – 7 July 2022 (aircraft intensive)
  • Where: Rambouillet Forest (supersite), ATR-42 (aircraft), Paris (urban site), SIRTA
  • Who: Researchers from LISA and partners throughout France, Europe, and the world
  • What: Make state-of-the-art measurements of gases and aerosol properties
  • Why: To learn more about the effect of urban air on biogenic organic compound chemistry and vice versa
