ReACT Team Visits PANGEA RI to observe atmospheric composition changes during global health crises

ReACT Team members Dr.Eleni Marinou, Anna Gialitaki and Spyros Metallinos, taking all the necessary safety and health measurements to keep social distance from the local population, visited the island of Antikythera for the repair and maintenance of the RI's instruments lidar PollyXT-NOA and CIMEL Sun Photometer.

Both instruments will be participating in an ACTRIS European experiment for studing the climate impact of the SARS-CoV-2 lockdown. 24/7 observations of the climate conditions for the following period will be performed, aiming to detect the aerosol changes within the global health crisis. The atmospheric composition measurements will be analysed in near real time within ACTRIS which will provide crucial information on aerosol and trace gases variables during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemics.

 

 

 

 

 

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).
