Objectives:


The aim of the school was to train early-stage researchers and university lecturers in airborne research focused on atmospheric composition and chemistry. The course has provided an overview on atmospheric chemistry with emphasis on airborne observations, as well as training on airborne instrumentation, measurement, data analysis and interpretation. The aircraft operator (FAAM) has also informed the students about issues specific to airborne measurements, such as safety rules, flight plan design and constraints, instrument calibration and operation. Each researcher who intended to participate have applied online at the EUFAR website. Subject to operational constraints, participants had the opportunity to participate in a research flight on the FAAM instrumented BAe-146 aircraft. Data will then be processed and analyzed with the support of experienced users of airborne facilities and form the basis for the final report.

 

Target audience:


The target audience were:

  • early-stage researchers (PhD students and post-docs) with a focus on airborne measurements for atmospheric composition and chemistry
  • limited number of university lecturers (max.5)

The participants of the SONATA training course has been selected by the EUFAR Office, the EUFAR Education&Training coordinator and the host based on CV/scientific background, interest, expectation and contribution to the training course and flight experiment.

 

Keynote speakers:


  • Stéphane Bauguitte (FAAM, UK)
  • Rod Jones (University of Cambridge, UK)
  • Phil Brown (MetOffice, UK) - to be confirmed
  • Jim McQuaid (University of Leeds, UK)
  • Mat Evans (University of Leeds, UK)
  • Piero Di Carlo (University of L'Aquila, Italy)
  • Stephen Devereau (FAAM, UK)

Travel and subsistence expenses:


Travel and subsistence expenses will be 100% supported by EUFAR (travel to training course location, transfers, accommodation, meals, etc).

 
  • Hotel bedrooms have already been pre-booked in at
    Piazza Duca D'Aosta 4
    65121 - Pescara, Italy
  • and meeting rooms at
    Piazza Sacro Cuore 55
    65122 - Pescara, Italy
     
  • All travel tickets will be booked by the EUFAR Office (unless agreed otherwise with the EUFAR Office in advance). This is to avoid complicated procedures for later reimbursement.

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.
