The Atmospheric Chemistry Experiment
The Atmospheric Chemistry Experiment (ACE) is a satellite mission on board the Canadian satellite SCISAT-1, that takes measurements of the Earth's atmosphere.
The measurements consist of spectra and images that are used to investigate chemical and dynamical processes in our atmosphere, with a particular emphasis on ozone depletion in the Arctic stratosphere.
Dr. Peter Bernath from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Waterloo is the head scientist of the mission, which involves the collaboration of members from several universities, industries and other organizations in Canada and around the world.
Funding for the ACE mission is primarily provided by the Canadian Space Agency.
