Since 1975 the European Campaigns on Remote Sensing, jointly sponsored by CEC and national organizations, have provided an opportunity for research teams involved in the fields of atmospheric pollution and meteorology to share techniques and to develop methodologies. At the same time, the large number of instruments available provide the host region with considerable information relevant to local air quality and environmental impact. The 6th Campaign, held in June 1983 under the sponsorship of the French Ministry of the Environment, the Direction Interdépartementale de 1’Industrie (DII) of Marseille, and the CEC, was concerned with the region of Fos-Berre, South France, one of the most densely industrialized areas in Europe.
