University "G. d’Annunzio" Chieti - Pescara

The SeptEx campaign was organized between August 31st and September 9th 2010 in East Midland (United Kingdom) as part of the RONOCO project.

The main objectives of the SeptEx (September Exercise) campaign concerned the study of pollutant emissions from shipping, anthropogenic emissions from megacity (such as London) and biogenic emissions and their impact on tropospheric daytime chemistry in the Southern United Kingdom, along the English Channel and in the North Sea.

This campaign also provided, therefore, day-time measures useful for a comparison with the nocturnal ones of the campaigns Ronoco Summer and Ronoco Winter.
