Crows Emily and Sham are back in Eureka for the ACE Arctic Campaign. As readers will know, Emily has been to Eureka several times. Sham is there for the first time. The picture shows her launching a radiosonde. I bet she is finding this quite a change from the winters in her native Sri Lanka!

Emily and Sham will principally be working on the Dalhousie CRL lidar, measuring water vapour, aerosol and cloud properties.

Updates on the campaign can be found here:, and on the CANDAC program and facilities:
