The first in-orbit Aeolus Cal/Val and Science Workshop will be held at ESA-ESRIN (Frascati, Italy) from 26 to 29 March 2019. The workshop will focus on the mission status, first data quality and Cal/Val results, the planning of the NWP impact assessment, and on the scientific exploitation of Aeolus data including current and possible future products.
If you would like to attend the workshop, act soon, as pre-registration is mandatory and the deadline is 25 February 2019.
ESA's Doppler Wind Lidar Mission, Aeolus, was successfully launched on 22 August 2018. The mission is a demonstrator for future operational missions, providing vertical profiles of the tropospheric and lower stratospheric wind field for the improvement of numerical weather prediction (NWP) and atmospheric dynamics research. Through Aeolus, the tropospheric and lower stratospheric circulation will be better determined.
