European Facility For Airborne Research Nov. 21, 2019, 23:46
As the consequences of climate change for ecosystems and populations become increasingly visible, research in the environmental and geosciences continues to play a central role in the development of forecasting and mitigation strategies. Airborne measurements using sophisticated aircraf and instruments play a leading role in this research, contributing to our understanding of processes in the atmosphere, oceans and land surface. The 2nd International Conference on Airborne Research for the Environment (ICARE 2017) brings together key players in the airborne research community, including expert scientists, aircraf operators and instrument developers. The conference is organized by EUFAR, the European Facility for Airborne Research which links the leading facilities and scientists in Europe, with input from the airborne research community in the USA, including NASA, NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) and the National Science Foundation. ICARE 2017 will be hosted at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), in Oberpfaﬀenhofen near Munich, from 10 to 13 July 2017. The 4-day event will enable participants from across Europe, the USA and beyond to exchange experience, to review future scientific user requirements and to consider development strategies for airborne research infrastructure to help meet these requirements.
