INABA Prize was awarded to Dr. Alexandra Tsekeri, Post-Doc Researcher of NOA-ReACT

The Inaba Prize was given to a NOA researcher!

The INABA Prize was awarded to Dr. Alexandra Tsekeri, Postdoctoral Researcher at the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), for the scientific paper entitled: "Polarization lidar for detecting dust orientation". The award is given every two years by the ICLAS Committee (International Coordination Group for Laser Atmospheric Studies), as part of the 2019 International Laser Radar Conference (ILRC), held in China.

In this particular work, Dr. Tsekeri presented NOA's proposal for the development of a prototype polarimetric lidar system for atmospheric remote sensing in collaboration with the Greek company Raymetrics. This system will be developed as part of the European Council's ERC Excellence Program (D-TECT ERC Consolidator Grant). D-TECT aims to study the natural processes that govern the transport of Saharan dust and in particular the orientation of the particles that affect the propagation of solar radiation. The system is called WALL-E and will be implemented in June 2020 in the NOA experiment organized in the Cape Verde Islands.


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).
