ORACLES

Documentary for the NASA ORACLES 2018 campaign. This year, the campaign was based out of the island os Sao Tomé, just off the west coast of Africa in the Ecuator.

Southern Africa produces almost a third of the Earth’s biomass burning (BB) aerosol particles, yet the fate of these particles and their influence on regional and global climate is poorly understood. ORACLES (ObseRvations of Aerosols above CLouds and their intEractionS) is a five year investigation with three Intensive Observation Periods (IOP) designed to study key processes that determine the climate impacts of African BB aerosols.
