Observing our atmosphere composition & surface from space: air quality, climate, trace gas, aerosol, cloud, land cover, satellite, spectral signature, remote sensing retrieval
A new desert dust aerosol climatology from 9-year CALIOP observations over Asia – Very happy to co-author new ACP paper of Proestakis et al. (2018), from National Observatory of Athens (NOA)!
A recent work achieved by my colleagues of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA): 9 years of observations acquired by the CALIOP space-borne instrument were combined with EARLINET ground-based measurements to provide a climatology of desert dust particles over South and East Asia.
Having such a knowledge is important for many research studies focused on atmospheric transport and climate effect of dust.
