CAICE investigators perform cutting edge research on complex aerosol chemistry.
Center-Enabled Major Experiment Campaigns
CAICE operates a summer research program for undergraduate students during each summer, with participants at multiple universities associated with the Center.
The experimental campaign for the summer for 2022 focuses on Characterizing Atmospheric-Oceanic parameters of SOARS (CHAOS).
Work side by side with CAICE research teams and complete a research project during this exciting paid summer opportunity. Applications are due February 1, 2020!
SeaSCAPE (Sea Spray Chemistry And Particle Evolution) 2019 took place at the Hydraulics Laboratory at UC San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The collaborative team of researchers filled a 33-meter-long wave channel with seawater. Bulk seawater, sea surface microlayer (SSML), and sea spray aerosol (SSA) was collected and measured around the clock, as the crashing waters within the wave tank experienced blooms of biological activity similar to that found in open oceans and seas.
Professors and students from all over the country gathered for the IMPACTS (Investigation into Marine Particle Chemistry and Transfer Science) 2014 experiment. The goal of this year's experiment was to better understand the link between ocean biology and the composition and physical properties of particles emitted from sea spray.
