First day of measurements for MAGIC2021!

On Monday 17 August, 3 research aircrafts, 5 ground-based Fourier Transform Spectrometers and 2 weather balloons were deployed over Sweden and Finland. All measurements went as planned and a huge amount of data on greenhouse gases are already available. Signals from local sources of methane are well seen on the recorded measurements and are now undergoing finer analysis. Congratulations to all involved in this success!
