North Atlantic Regional Experiment (NARE), 1991 - 2001

NARE was an experiment that was implemented from 1991-1994 that was created through the merging of Atmosphere/Ocean Chemistry Experiment (AEROCE), which became a critical component of the project. It was established to study the chemical processes of the marine troposphere most impacted by industrial emissions. The primary objective was to investigate the chemical and transport processes that shape ozone distribution over the North Atlantic and to estimate the impact of human-induced emissions from North America and Europe on the production of tropospheric ozone and related parameters. NARE later merged with East Asian/North Pacific Regional Experiment (APARE) in the creation of Intercontinental Transport and Chemical Transformation (ITCT), which provided a broader geographical range perspective to chemical and transport processes.
