Eleni Marinou (EM) graduated from the Applied Physics Department of the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences of the National Technical University of Athens (2010). She received her M.Sc. in the field of “Environmental Physics” from the Physics Department of the Kapodistrian University of Athens (2013). She acquired her PhD diploma on the study of the vertical distribution of desert dust and condensation nuclei over the Mediterranean from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2017). She has been contacting research at the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS) of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) since 2010, focusing on the retrieval of atmospheric parameters using passive and active remote sensing techniques. Since 2018 she is in collaboration with the Aerosol and Clouds research group of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the German Aerospace Center (DLR).


Atmospheric aerosol and cloud properties and interactions. She has been working mostly on studies related to the properties of mineral dust, its climatic role and its impact on cloud formation, retrieving properties of aerosols and clouds (from active and passive remote sensing methods) and on validation of space-borne atmospheric products using ground-based lidar and sun-photometric techniques.


About Us

ReACT stands for “Remote sensing of Aerosols, Clouds and Trace gases”, to describe the research focus of the respective research team led by Dr. Vassilis Amiridis. ReACT consists of highly motivated scientists within the field of Atmospheric Sciences, combining a number of Post-doc researchers, Ph.D. and M.Sc. students as well as other research and technical staff, using the resources, infrastructure and experience of the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS).
