Jan/Feb 2024, Cairns, Australia

The CAFE-Pacific mission takes place in the Indo-Pacific region north-west and northeast of Cairns, Australia, in January and February 2024. This will be at the onset of the Australian monsoon wet season. The main focus of the mission will be on the investigation of the photooxidation chemistry, the radical cycling, new particle formation and photochemical aging for the pristine marine conditions of the tropical Pacific.

The preparation phase at DLR Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany, has successfully been completed before Christmas 2023, the main campaign phase at Cairns is currently ongoing.

The mission is funded by the Max Planck Society and the DFG (HALO-SPP 1294).
