Cranfield University is partnering with FAAM to offer a PhD studentship funded through the Central England NERC Training Alliance (CENTA2) doctoral training program.  The project aims to develop a miniaturised package of relatively low-cost instruments for the airborne measurement of CO2 and CO, and deploy the new system on FAAM’s X-rack, which concept is to fast-track access for prototyping new technology on-board its atmospheric research aircraft. 

One of FAAM's recent (MOYA) flights around the Saddleworth Moor fires was featured on the BBC. You can see the report online here

In summer 2017, Jacob Maresca from the University of Sussex worked at FAAM as part of the South East Physics Network (SEPnet) placement program.

Jacob discusses his placement here.

Following ascents and descents, the BBR's can be out of thermal equilibrium (the inner dome temperature may take longer to stabilise than the outer dome) which can cause errors and negative values in the data.

FAAM is involved in the EUFAR Summer School (STANCO) this summer.
