Initial Training for Atmospheric Remote Sensing (ITARS)

FP7-PEOPLE-2011-ITN Marie-Curie Action: “Initial Training Networks”

Duration: 2012-04-01 to 2016-03-31 EC Website

Project reference: 289923

Total cost: EUR 3 693 644

Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Susanne Crewell, University of Cologne

The ITaRS website is temporarily unavailable. To get a first impression of our fellows' work, have a look at the presentations given in October 2015 at the Meteorological Technology World Expo in Brussels:

Prof. Dr. Susanne Crewell Training for atmospheric remote sensing: The ITaRS program

Lev Labzovsky Contribution to the study of the humidity effects on aerosol optical properties using Multiwavelength Lidar and Microwave Radiometer

Umar Saeed Atmospheric boundary-layer height retrieval using microwave radiometer and lidar sensors: Algorithms and error estimation

Pilar Gumà-Claramunt Synergy between Doppler radar and Raman lidar for aerosol investigation

Stefanos Samaras Microphysical aerosol parameters via regularized inversion of LIDAR data

Dr. Ioannis Binietoglou Remote sensing synergies for dust model evaluation

Sophia Schäfer 3D cloud-radiation interaction

Lukas Pfitzenmaier Why does it rain? Ice particles growth within clouds

Alexander Myagkov 35-GHz cloud radar MIRA-35 with hybrid mode

María Barrera Verdejo Ground Based Lidar and Microwave Radiometry Synergy for High Vertical Resolution Thermodynamic Profiling

Claudia Acquistapace The detection of autoconversion processes in clouds using ground-based passive and active microwave sensors

Athina Argyrouli Cloud-topped Planetary Boundary Layer

Robert Banks Applications of remote sensing for improvement of air quality forecasts over Europe

Dr. Xinxin Busch Li The observation of the first aerosol indirect effect on clouds

Dr. Nicolae Ajtai Aerosol-cloud interaction in the twilight zone

ITaRS brings together a group of universities, research organizations and high-tech companies from different disciplines with the aim to further develop the area of atmospheric remote sensing. Over the last three years, they trained 16 PhD students and young post-docs in this Marie Sklodowska-Curie Initial Training Network. The ITaRS network offered their fellows a mixture of summer schools, joint campaigns, soft skill courses and work experience in academia and industry. Each of the fellows is employed by one of our 9 European partners. Together, they form a new generation of scientists, who are able to close the gap between the specialized development of single instruments and atmospheric applications.
