CSL pursues field campaigns to advance scientific knowledge of our core research areas of air quality, climate, and the stratosphere as well as to address programmatic/stakeholder priorities. Field campaigns are an essential part of the CSL science portfolio. The size and scope of the field campaigns sets CSL apart from other research institutions.
