(Registrations closed on June 20th 2010 - 6.00pm)
The 2nd FP7 EUFAR Training Course "Training & Education for Turbulence Research via Airborne Data" (TETRAD), organized by the CNR ISAC Institute for Atmospheric Sciences and Climate will be held from September 10th to 18th 2010 at Hyères, France.
This training course primarily aims to teach and train PhD students and post-docs on the use of a research aircraft, and on the possibilities it opens from an experimental point of view. The second goal is to provide a thorough overview of airborne measurement techniques, specific issues of the airborne measurements and data analysis addressing the scientific problem of Cloud/Turbulence interaction. Four 2-hour flights with the SAFIRE ATR42 aircraft equipped for all the scientific purposes of the training course (turbulence, microphysics) will be part of the course. Participants will be able to design their own flight experiments and visit the instrumented aircraft. All 20 participants have the opportunity to perform a research flight on the SAFIRE instrumented ATR42 aircraft.
The target audience is early-stage researchers (PhD students and post-docs)with a background in fluid dynamics and thermodynamics. The participants of the TETRAD training course will be selected from the participants of the preceding summer school "Fluctuations and Turbulence in the Microphysics and Dynamic of Clouds" (http://www.oca.eu/clouds-turbulence/clouds.html) based on a short scientific proposal (max. 15 lines) about measurements to be performed and related research questions as part of the TETRAD on-line application.
During the workshops, each of the four working groups has the opportunity to design a flight plan for a 1,5-2 hour scientific flight (from take-off to landing) with the help of the SAFIRE ATR42 crew. (Draft timetable)
Between September 13th and September 15th, each working group will be able to perform their airborne experiment.
From September 14th to 16th, the acquired data will be analyzed with the support of experienced users of airborne facilities and the SAFIRE ATR42 crew.
On September 17th, the four working groups will present their airborne experiments and results.
Travel and subsistence expenses will be 100% supported by EUFAR (travel to training course location, transfers, accommodation in double rooms, meals, etc).
Aircraft tickets must be booked, if practical, at least 2 months before the departure date in order to get the most favourable rate. All travel must be done at the economical rate.
