Education&Training - QAD Training Course

Education&Training - QAD Training Course

(Registrations will close on the September, 14th 2010 - 6.00pm)

The 3rd FP7 EUFAR Training Course "Quality of Airborne Data" (QAD), organized by the Stockholm University will be held from October 26th to November 5th 2010 at Toulouse, France.

 

Objectives:


This training course primarily aims to educate and train PhD students, post-docs and university lecturers and professionals working for operators of airborne research aircraft. The main topic of the training course is to provide training on design, methodology and data analysis of inter-comparison measurements among research aircraft. The course will include as lectures as well as data analysis of inter-comparison data obtained during ICARE 2010 inter-comparison flights. Flights will be performed by a number of EUFAR and eventually other aicraft present during ICARE 2010. The aicraft are equipped for all scientific purposes of the training course. Participants will learn how to design their own flight experiments within the "working" airspace available and visit the instrumented aircraft during the training course. If possible, participants will be taken on-board during the inter-comparison flights.

 

Target audience:


The target audience are:

  • early-stage researchers (PhD students and post-docs)with a focus on airborne measurements
  • professionals working for operators of airborne research airplanes
  • limited number of university lecturers (max.5)

The participants of the QAD training course will be selected based on a short scientific proposal about the measurements to be performed and related research questions.

 

Keynote speakers:


  • Jean-Louis Brenguier (Météo-France, France)
  • Hans Schlager (DLR, Germany)
  • Andreas Minikin (DLR, Germany)
  • Radovan Krejci (Stockholm University, Sweden)
  • Manfred Wendisch(University of Leipzig, Germany)
  • Jim McQuaid (University of Leeds, UK)
 

Programme:


First two days will include mainly lectures about airborne measurements of meteorological parameters, trace gases, aerosols and clouds.
Each of the participants working groups will have the opportunity to participate on design a flight plan for an inter-comparison based on given information about the logistics, airplane performance and instrumentation and air space availability.
Inter-comparison flights will take place on 29 and 30 October 2010 and participants on the course will take active part directly at the airport. If conditions allow, they will also participate on board of some of the research aircrafts.
On 31st October there will be ICARE Public exhibition day.
On 1st November visit to Pico du Midi observatory is planned.
From 2nd to 4th November main focus of the course will be hands on experience on data evaluation of inter-comparison data obtained during ICARE flights.
