This overview summarizes the objectives of the Aerosol Characterization Experiments (ACEs) of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) project and the research strategy implemented in the second of this series of experiments (ACE-2). ACE-2 took place from 16 June to 24 July 1997, over the sub-tropical North-East Atlantic. It provided an opportunity to study the properties, processes and effects of contrasting aerosol types in this region, including background marine and anthropogenic pollution aerosol in the marine boundary layer (MBL), and background aerosol and mineral dust in the overlaying free troposphere (FT).
