Autumn flight campaigns in MOCA: aircraft measurements above Siberia and Kara Sea
The 2nd MOCA flight campaign starts from Novosibirsk 15. October, and continue with targeted flights for 3-5 days, depending on weather. French and Russian collaborators lead this campaign. We are using a well-equipped aircraft,

This campaign is starting in Novosibirsk, going to Salekhard and then over the Kara Sea, and back. The aircraft will fly as low as possible over the ocean to try to identify methane hot spots and plumes. At the same time RV Helmer Hanssen is in the Barents sea, also doing atmospheric measurements.
