Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLAB) 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 (External) “Global” station within the (External) 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 (External) 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.
