University "G. d’Annunzio" Chieti - Pescara

The RONOCO Winter campaign was held at East Midland Airport between 10 and 28 January 2011 as part of the RONOCO project.

Most flights were organized during daylight hours and occasionally at sunrise and sunset as during RONOCO Summer from the East Midland Airport (UK). The RONOCO Winter campaign had similar goals to Ronoco Summer and SeptEx, providing information on night-time tropospheric chemistry during the winter.
