Tropical convection, cirrus, and nitrogen oxides experiment

Objective

The project TROCCINOX (Tropical Convection, Cirrus, and Nitrogen Oxides Experiment) will investigate the impact of tropical deep convection on the distribution and the sources of trace gases, cloud and aerosol particles focusing on processes in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. The general objectives of are:
(a) to improve the knowledge about lightning-produced NOx in tropical thunderstorms by quantifying the produced amounts, by comparing it to other major Sources of NOx and by assessing it 's global impact, and
(b) to improve the current knowledge on the occurrence of other trace gases (including water vapour) and particles (ice crystal and aerosols) in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere in connection with tropical deep convection as well as large scale up welling motions
