Flying over the Saharan Cauldron III
by Carolina Cavazos-Guerra, Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), Potsdam, Germany
The Saharan desert has one of the most extreme climates on Earth. The dust loading and thermodynamics over this region are unique, and have major impacts on the climate of North Africa, Europe and the Atlantic. Fennec is a large-scale programme designed to tackle one of the world’s key climate regions by delivering the most comprehensive field campaign ever mounted in this hugely-empty, fiercely hot and inhospitable region.
