The Environmental Chamber is a new Laboratory which will have the capacity to perform experiments under simulated environmental conditions to facilitate greater understanding of field observations. It will further the understanding of various atmospheric processes such as the influence of air temperature, solar radiation, relative humidity, reactive gases and of radicals reactions on aerosols and the modification of their properties (physical, chemical, thermodynamic, optical).

It will also have an educational goal: providing students and researches from Cyprus and elsewhere in the region with the training necessary for them to operate in more advanced chambers such as EUROCHAMP 2000 or the CLOUD chamber at CERN.
