Data use information
Use constraintsPermission is granted to use these data and images in research and publications when accompanied by the following statement : «All measurement presented here are from the Chemistry-Aerosol Mediterranean Experiment project(ChArMEx , http://charmex.lsce.ipsl.fr), which is the atmospheric component of the French multidisplinary program MISTRALS (Mediterranean Integrated Studies aT Regional And Local Scales). ChArMEx-France was principally funded by INSU, ADEME, ANR, CNES, CTC (Corsica region), EU/FEDER, Météo-France, and CEA. The aircraft were operated by SAFIRE.»
TRAQA was funded by ADEME/PRIMEQUAL and MISTRALS/ChArMEx programmes and Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées.
CNRM-GAME's TRAMM team of Météo France is acknowledged for their aircraft data processing and ALADIN-CCM simulation.
