Cancellation of Jan/Feb 2021 Intensive Observing Period (IOP)

7 October 2020

Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 it is likely that a range of interventions may be in place at UK universities this winter, including limits on travel and fieldwork. A decision has therefore been made to cancel the Clean Air Programme winter Intensive Observing Period, previously scheduled for Monday 20 January to Friday 28 February 2021.

The intention is however to continue as planned with a summer community experiment from Monday 8 June to Friday 17 July 2021.

The scheduling of a winter experiment from mid-January to mid-February 2022 is currently under active discussion with key stakeholders in the Clean Air programme and with the university hosts of the NERC supersites. A decision is likely to be made towards the end of 2021.
