PANGEA-ReACT Facility

 

PANGEA (PANhellenic GEophysical observatory of Antikythera) is an ambitious strategic goal of NOA to establish a sustainable climate observatory at the island of Antikythera (35.861N, 23.310E, 110m a.s.l). The site has been selected by NOA and PANACEA due to its representativeness of the broader region of Eastern Mediterranean.  The region is a crossroad of air masses transporting different aerosol types, significantly impacted by mineral dust from Africa, smoke from frequent regional forest fires, anthropogenic pollution from megacities and background sea-salt particles.

NOA and ReACT  Group are currently implementing the PANGEA-ReACT facility at Antikythera, an instrumental suite that fulfills the optimum requirements of the ACTRIS RI, including a 24/7 multi-wavelength lidar (fully operational at Antikythera- http://polly.tropos.de/?p=lidarzeit&Ort=13&lidar_id=236), a NASA-AERONET sunphotometer (https://aeronet.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/data_display_aod_v3?site=Antikythera_NOA&nachal=2&level=3&place_code=10), a UV-MFR (Ultraviolet Multi-filter Radiometer), a Direct-sun Solar Polarimeter (SolPol) and a Field Mill Electrometer (JCI 131 FM).
