TORERO: Tropical Ocean tRoposphere Exchange of Reactive halogen species and Oxygenated VOC


The scientific objective of the TORERO project is to study the release and transport of halogenated gases and oxidized VOCs in the Eastern Tropical Pacific during the season of the high biologic productivity. The project timeframe is coincident with a proposed complementary research vessel project in the same area.  The project will utilize the GV aircraft to fly at several altitudes collecting remote sensing and in situ data. The GV will be located in San José, Costa Rica with a forward deployment to Antofagasta, central Chile, returning to the base in Costa Rica after three research flights.
