The 2nd EUFAR Summer School (ACAS) dealt with Airborne Cloud and Aerosol Science. It was organized by KNMI (Koninklijk Netherlands Meteorological Institute) from April 17th to April 25th 2008 and was based at Utrecht, The Netherlands.
The main scope was to provide a comprehensive overview to PhD students on airborne measurement techniques, data analysis and specifics of airborne measurements of aerosol and cloud properties. The lectures focused not only on scientific issues and data analysis, but also on the design of airborne experiments, including technical and safety constraints. The lectures were accompanied by a visit of the FAAM BAe146 research aircraft (3 days). Three flights of 2h20min were performed with the students on board.
Lectures were planned from Thursday, April 17th to Monday, April 21st.
Field measurement activities: from Tuesday 22nd to Thursday 23rd
The three flights of 2h20min each with students on board (6 students per flight) were performed on April 22nd, 23rd and 24th in the morning.
