ADM-Aeolus Science and CAL/VAL Workshop
ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy
10-13 February 2015
ESA is currently implementing the Doppler Wind Lidar mission 'ADM-Aeolus' being part of its Living Planet Programme. 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 and atmospheric research. Through ADM-Aeolus, the tropospheric and lower stratospheric circulation will be better determined. The largest improvement is expected in the tropics, over the oceans and in polar areas, where the atmosphere is currently not well sampled on small scales. In addition, ADM-Aeolus will provide valuable profile information of aerosol and cloud layer optical properties. Further information about the mission is available HERE.
Objectives and Expected Outcomes
The Organising Committee hereby cordially invites you to participate in the "ADM-Aeolus Science and Cal/Val Workshop".
The objective of the workshop is to bring scientists and Cal/Val Principle Investigators (PI) together at ESA to present and discuss the Aeolus mission and products, science applications and Calibration and Validation aspects. A motivation is to allow Cal/Val Principle Investigators to get familiar with the mission, and to meet and coordinate their efforts in contributing to the mission validation. The Workshop shall in that respect largely contribute to the detailing of the Cal/Val Implementation Plan. Furthermore, the scientific community are invited to present their plans for the use of the Aeolus data and to start getting familiar with the expected products and product quality.
Programme, Summary and Posters
The official language of this conference is English. The conference will be organised around: Oral and poster presentations selected by the Organising Committee Plenary discussions and round tables ADM-Aeolus Cal/Val rehearsal evaluation.
