The YAK-AEROSIB (Airborne Extensive Regional Observations in SIBeria) project aims to establish systematic airborne observations of the atmospheric composition over Siberia. More »

YAK-AEROSIB is a bilateral cooperation coordinated by researchers from LSCE in France and IAO in Russia, involving teams from several laboratories in both countries, and active in several international collaborations. Coordination: Jean-Daniel Paris (LSCE, FR) and Boris D. Belan (IAO, RU). More »
