This documentary, based on the account of various scientists, dives us into the heart of the intensive
ChArMEx (Chemistry Aerosol Mediterranean Experiment) research campaign mounted during summer 2013.
Researchers are analysing the atmospheric pollution, tracking a huge dust plume sent up from the Sahara Desert and rised above the Mediterranean area towards Europe. The purpose of the project is to study air pollution in Western Mediterranean basin, in order to understand its origins and interactions with local climate but also the impact of long distance transportation system on the air quality.
