EUFAR awards DoGMA and ClIMA research projects to perform 16 hour flights during PRE-TECT

March 9, 2017, 11:42 a.m.

EUFAR awards the two rPRE-TECT related research projects with a total of 16 aircraft flight hours (8+8) of the FA20 – DLR aircraft and 5K euros (2.5K + 2.5K) to cover Travel & Subsistence expenses:

1. Evaluating Dust forecasting over the eastern Mediterranean Area (DoGMA)

NICKOVIC Slobodan (Project leader),AMIRIDIS Vassilis, CVETKOVIC Bojan, ILIC Luka, PEJANOVIC Goran, PETKOVIC Slavko, SOLOMOS Stavros, WEINZIERL Bernadett

2. Evaluation of ground-based lidar methodologies for continuous profiling of Cloud condensation and Ice nuclei concentrations in the Mediterranean (ClIMA)

AMIRIDIS Vassilis (Project leader ), BINIETOGLOU Ioannis, GERASOPOULOS Evangelos, KOKKALIS Panagiotis, KOTTAS Michael, MAMOURI Rodanthi, MARINOU Eleni, NENES Athanasios, PAPAYANNIS Alexandros, PROESTAKIS Emmanouil, TSEKERI Alexandra, WEINZIERL Bernadett, KANAKIDOU Maria, KALIVITIS Nikos

The flights will add on PRE-TECT, ACTRIS JRA1 and A-LIFE/ERC campaigns, providing:

  • Active remote sensing measurements from a Doppler lidar system.
  • Black carbon mass and mixing state, multi-wavelength aerosol absorption coefficient and SSA.
  • In-situ particle concentration and size distributions for a wide size range (0.004-900 µm).
  • Particle sampling for offline analysis.
  • Number concentration of cloud condensation nuclei.
  • Basic meteorological fields (wind, temperature, humidity).
