European Facility For Airborne Research March 18, 2018, 07:05
Airborne Laser Scanning Software Workshop, TU Vienna, Nov 2014
The Expert Working Groups address technical and scientific issues specific to airborne measurements, through specialised workshops, with a view to exchange knowledge and promote best practices in airborne research.
The main objectives of the EUFAR Expert Working Groups are:
|Expert Working Group||Leader|
|Calibration / Validation||MALTHUS Tim|
|Certification / Operations||GRATTON Guy|
|Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems / UAS||REUDER Joachim|
|Quality Assurance / Control||SCHLAGER Hans georg|
|Measurement of Aircraft State, and Thermodynamic and Dynamic Parameters||ZOGER Martin|
|In Situ Trace Gas Measurements||MCQUAID Jim|
|In Situ Measurements of Aerosol Particles||FORMENTI Paola|
|In Situ Characterisation of Cloud and Precipitation Particles||VOIGT Christiane|
|Aerosol and Cloud Particle Sampling||KRAEMER Martina|
|Atmospheric Radiation and Remote Sensing Measurements||RUHTZ Thomas|
|Hyperspectral Remote Sensing||BEN DOR Eyal|
|Lidar and Radar Observations||DELANOE Julien|
Participants are experts in airborne measurements that are recognised internationally in their field.
Their activities are conducted within targeted workshops related to the expert working groups.
The main activity of the experts is to disseminate their knowledge through the EUFAR Front-Office (EUFAR website), by providing information about the whole set of instruments available for every type of airborne measurement, about existing probes in Europe and their specific improvements, about their ownership and the access procedures, about scientific references, about technical issues and regulations specific to airborne research operation.
Only registered members can apply to become experts in one or more of the working groups listed above. To apply to become an expert, click on the group of interest in the table above.
To be kept simply up-to-date on the activities related to a specific working group, join the group's mailing list.
A number of thematic expert workshops will be held along the course of the current EUFAR project (2014-2018) linked to the aforementioned working groups . Each workshop will deliver a report including recommendations to the scientific community, aircraft operators and funding organisations. Three workshops will be jointly held in collaboration with the N5TTO: Technology Transfer Activity, where by experts and industry players will be given the opportunity to closely interact and develop partnerships for upgrading and transforming airborne research instruments, methodologies and software into innovative and useful products.
