The AERosols and Oceanographic Science Expeditions (AEROSE) comprise a principal effort. The AEROSE cruises are an internationally recognized series of field campaigns designed to explore African air mass outflows and their impacts on climate, weather, and environmental health. This projects began with a dedicated cruise in 2004 and has been conducted annually since 2006 to generate the most comprehensive data set of complementary atmospheric measurement and oceanographic observations aimed at characterizing the impact and microphysical evolution of Saharan dust aerosols transported across the Atlantic Ocean.
