Cal/Val Activities

VADAM - Validation of ADM-Aeolus L2 aerosol and cloud product employing advanced ground-based lidar Measurements

PI: V. Amiridis

Start date: 2019

Assigned by: European Space Agency
The objective of this project is to validate the Aeolus L2A cloud and aerosol spin-off
products (supplementary geophysical products) and the related instrument
calibration modes and algorithms. The validation will be performed with ground-
based Raman/polarization lidar instruments providing unbiased profiles of particle
extinction, optical depth, backscatter, extinction-to-backscatter ratio and linear and
circular depolarization ratios for clouds and aerosol at 355 nm. Simultaneous
measurements will be performed during the ground campaign planned to be carried
out at different geo locations. All the selected sites are members of the ACTRIS
European Infrastructure Network.

ACROSS - Validation of EarthCARE products towards their homogenization with CALIPSO for consolidating the 3Dlong-term ESA-LIVAS climatology of aerosols, clouds and radiation

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).
