EUFAR is organising three summer schools in June/July 2017 on various topics from using airborne data to explore air sea interaction to using airborne remote sensing for monitoring essential biodiversity variables in forest ecosystems! Find out more by clicking here.
The use of stratospheric aircraft has been successful in the last 15 years in terms of technical developments, achieved scientific results in various fields and community-building, and important scientific topics...
Following EU Research's interview with EUFAR scientific coordinator, Philip Brown (Met Office, UK), a 3-page article on EUFAR's support on airborne research features in the magazine's 2017 Spring edition.
EUFAR handbook is the first comprehensive review of airborne measurement principles covers all atmospheric components and surface parameters. It describes the common techniques to characterise aerosol particles and cloud/precipitation elements,.....
AMS Meteorological Monographs are thematic collections of peer-reviewed, original papers, survey articles, and other materials in meteorology and closely related fields that do not otherwise appear in AMS Journals.
The EXAEDRE project is a 36-month (1 October 2016 to 1 October 2019) project funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR). It will contribute to the HyMeX ST-Lightning and TS4a (Corsican site) activities.

The workshop on atmospheric correction of remote sensing data took place at the Harnack House of the Max-Planck Society in Berlin-Dahlem from 26 Oct. to 28 Oct. 2016. It was cofunded by EUFAR and the European Space Agency and hosted by the Freie Universität Berlin. 30 scientists and experts of remote sensing applications coming from more 10 different European and other international countries attended the workshop and exchanged their knowledge and expertise on this specific topic.
It may seem bizarre that processes occurring within clouds near the USA, involving tiny ice crystals and water droplets, can have an influence on high impact weather events thousands of miles away in Europe, and our ability to predict them days in advance. However, this is the fundamental nature of the atmosphere as a chaotic dynamical system.
With their extensive coverage of Earth, low clouds greatly impact global climate. Currently, the extent and brightness of marine low clouds are poorly represented in global climate models and the response of low clouds to changes in atmospheric greenhouse gases and aerosols remains a major source of uncertainty in projections of future climate.
