The Campaign

The Tropospheric Aerosol Radiative Forcing Observational Experiment (TARFOX) was a NASA-led campaign, which was aimed at studying the effects of aerosols on radiative forcing and climate change. TARFOX was conducted in July of 1996 along the U.S. eastern seaboard. This location was chosen due to it being the origin of one of the world’s largest plumes of industrial haze that moves over the Atlantic Ocean. NASA aircraft, such as the ER-2 and C-130, along with satellites, ships and ground instrumentation were utilized to obtain measurements of aerosol properties and characterize subsequent effects in the study area. TARFOX was funded by a host of agencies including NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Department of Energy (DoE).
