Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLAB)
The Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab) is a specialised observatory in coastal Antarctica dedicated to studies of this remote background atmosphere and the processes that influence its chemical signature.

The laboratory supports short-timescale studies to determine and quantify controlling processes, and long-term observations to monitor for compositional change.

Halley is a “Global” station within the World Meteorological Organisation Global Atmospheric Watch Programme, providing critical baseline observations of atmospheric composition to the international community. Since 1983, Halley station has contributed to the NOAA cooperative sampling network.

The Halley CASLab is operated by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) but with a view to work collaboratively with research groups in the UK or international science community.
