Ucluelet 2013


In August 2013, NETCARE scientists conducted a campaign on the west coast of Vancouver Island, attempting to characterize the nature of ice nuclei in a marine environment.  Measurements were conducted to measure the ambient levels of both deposition and immersion ice nucleating particles, and physical and chemical properties of the ambient particle and trace gases.  As well, we collected ocean microlayer and studied the ice nucleating properties of particles that were formed from this material.  In addition to scientists from the University of British Columbia and the University of Toronto, the campaign went ahead with strong collaborations with Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the University of Denver.
