The Manchester Aerosol Chamber

The Manchester Aerosol Chamber
The Manchester aerosol chamber during the mesocosm experiments in 2009 which formed part of the ACES project.

The Manchester aerosol chamber has been designed to study atmospheric processes of multicomponent aerosols under controlled conditions. Our research ranges from formation and transformation of secondary organic aerosols (SOA) under seeded and un-seeded conditions to investigations of the direct and indirect effects of multicomponent aerosols on climate. A key feature and major objective of the chamber facility is to investigate the changing potential of the aerosol populations to affect radiative forcing as they evolve chemically and physically and thus to improve quantification of the effects of competing aerosol processes on climate.
