Atmospheric Science Conference 2006

08-May - 12-May 2006

ESA/ESRIN, Frascati, Italy

The European Space Agency organised a Europhysics Conference on the topical theme atmosphere to provide scientists and data users with the opportunity to present first-hand and up-to-date results from their ongoing research activities on the ERS-2/GOME-1, ENVISAT/GOMOS/MIPAS/SCIAMACHY, EOS-AURA/OMI and ACE/FTS/MAESTRO instruments.

The conference included discussions on applications, data quality, and the development of new algorithms and data products.


The objectives of the Atmospheric Science Conference 2006 were to:

  • Provide a forum for ESA Principal Investigators to present results of AO and Cat1 projects
  • Provide a forum for knowledge exchange of scientists using atmospheric satellite measurements
  • Inform data users about instrument performance, data processing and product quality
  • Discuss various aspects of the data ordering process, data analysis and interpretation
  • Demonstrate the synergistic use of different atmospheric instruments
  • Demonstrate the synergistic use of atmospheric and optical instruments (e.g. AATSR/SCIAMACHY)
  • Formulate recommendations for algorithm development.


The conference themes were:

  • Instrument Performance
  • Products and algorithms, data processing, and data quality
  • Remote sensing of trace gases in the stratosphere and troposphere
  • Remote sensing of clouds, aerosols and UV information
  • Air pollution monitoring
  • Data assimilation techniques
  • Atmospheric applications development
  • User Tools
