We are pleased to invite you to the following seminar:
Title: Lidar space-borne simulations for the upcoming Aerosol-Cloud-Ecosystems (ACE) NASA mission.
Speaker: Dr. David Whiteman (NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center)
Place: Andalusian Institute for Earth System Research , conference room. Edf. CEAMA
Date: June 10th, 2016
Aerosol-Cloud-Ecosystem (ACE), a mission recommended by NRC’s 2007 Earth Science Decadal Survey (DS), is under NASA pre-formulation study. The ACE science working group (SWG) was established to study in more detail the mission concepts, science measurement requirements, and instrument capabilities, and consists of three subgroups focusing aerosol, cloud and ocean ecosystem sciences. ACE will assist in answering fundamental science questions associated with aerosols, clouds, and ocean ecosystems, by making improved and more comprehensive measurements through the use of innovative and advanced remote sensing technologies. Here we will discuss about the High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) of different wavelengths for the measure of aerosol extinction, backscattering and depolaraziation.
