Education & Training - RS4ForestEBV Training Course

 

Entitled, “RS4ForestEBV - Airborne remote sensing for monitoring essential biodiversity variables in forest ecosystems", the 9th EUFAR Training Course, financed by EUFAR and jointly organised together with the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation of the University of Twente, will be held in the Bavarian Forest National Park and the German Aerospace Centre - DLR in Oberpfaffenhofen from 3 to 14 July 2017.

Forest management requires the use of comprehensive remote sensing data which enable monitoring biodiversity changes. Biophysical and biochemical vegetation parameters can characterise changes in biodiversity through changes in ecosystem structure and function. In this training course, the special skills required for processing the new generation of airborne hyperspectral, thermal, and LiDAR data for retrieving essential biodiversity variables in forest ecosystems will be presented.

The ground data collection that will be performed during the first week of the training course at the Bavarian Forest National Park aims to provide the participants (PhD students, post-docs and university lecturers) with knowhow on tools (field spectroscopy, thermal spectrometry and terrestrial LiDAR) and measurement techniques to collect different vegetation variables. In addition, an airborne campaign for concurrent acquisitions of hyperspectral, thermal and LiDAR, data will be organised during the training course if the weather conditions allow. The flight experiment will be conducted on board an instrument research aircraft (to be determined).

Data acquired during the training course as well as archived data will be processed and analysed in the hands-on sessions with the support of experienced users of airborne facilities and form the basis for the final scientific report. RS4forestEBV data will also be made available after the training course via the EUFAR website, accessible to all EUFAR registered members.

Furthermore, during the second week, participants will be able to attend certain sessions of the 2nd International Conference on Airborne Research for the Environment (ICARE) that will be held simultaneously on the DLR premises from 10 -13 July 2017.

Education & Training - STANCO Training Course

 

The 8th EUFAR Training Course, financed by EUFAR and jointly organised together with DiSPUTER of the University “G. d'Annunzio” of Chieti-Pescara will take place from 26 June to 6 July 2017 in Cambridge, UK.  

Entitled, “School and Training on Aircraft New techniques for Atmospheric Composition Observation", the training course will take place at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Cambridge (UK) (TBC). During the course, a visit to the FAAM (Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements) at Cranfield airport will be organised to have a first overview of the BAe-146 and of the instruments installed on board the aircraft. The lectures will be integrated with three mission flights using the BAe-146 aircraft where students will have the opportunity to have hands-on training on conducting airborne measurements.

To download the STANCO flyer, click here.

Objectives:


The main objective is to provide an overview on measurement techniques, data analysis and specifics of airborne measurements of species relevant in the atmosphere. Emphasis will be on new instruments and emerging techniques for aircraft observations.

Air pollution and climate changes are global problems and the species responsible for these environmental issues are emitted essentially by the same process: fossil fuel burning.

The observations of these compounds using aircraft platforms are needed as usually most of these measurements are highly dependent on altitude and exhibit large horizontal variability. Aircraft allow in-situ measurements that can be used to identify and track emission plume of atmospheric trace gases.

The lectures will include an introduction on atmospheric composition focusing on pollution transport, vertical distribution of atmospheric compounds and links between air pollution and climate changes. They will also cover the technical, engineering and safety aspects of airborne measurements.

Subject to operational constraints, all students will have the opportunity to participate in a research flight on the FAAM instrumented BAe-146 aircraft. Data will then be processed and analysed with the support of experienced users of airborne facilities.

Through this training course, participants will learn:

  • how to develop a measurement strategy and design a flight plan for an airborne campaign;
  • experimental techniques to study the atmospheric composition on-board aircraft;
  • how to develop sampling strategies to measure trace gases and aerosols in the atmosphere;
  • how to calibrate aircraft instruments and validate airborne measurements;
  • the post-process techniques of airborne data.

Target audience:


The target audience is early-stage researchers (PhD students and post-docs) and a limited number of university lecturers. For the early-stage researchers, a scientific knowledge-base in atmospheric physics, meteorology, atmospheric chemistry, environmental fluid dynamics and some experience in the use of geo-information software is required to participate in this training course.

Eligibility:


Early-stage researchers (PhD students and post-docs) and university lecturers working in an institution established in a European Member State or Associated State are eligible to apply to join the EUFAR training course and are also eligible for T&S support through EUFAR.

Education & Training - EASI Training Course

 

The 7th EUFAR Training Course, financed by EUFAR and jointly organised together with CNR-ISAC and VITO, will take place from 25 June to 4 July 2017 in Shannon, Ireland.  Entitled, "Exploring Air-Sea Interaction via Airborne Measurements (EASI)", the training course will take place at the Shannon airport. A visit to the Mace Head Atmospheric Research Station is planned.

Click here, to access the training course flyer.

Objectives:


The primary goal of the EASI training course is to teach and train students (PhD and Post- graduate level) and young sci­entists on the use of a research aircraft, and on the experimen­tal possibilities it opens for atmospheric physics and chemis­try research. This implies providing them with an overview of airborne and remote sensing experimental techniques, and of specific features of collecting and analysing airborne measure­ments. In addition, EASI aims to transfer consolidated knowl­edge on and recent advancements in specific topics related to air-sea interaction, and near coastal boundary layer structure and dynamics.

Specifically, flight experiments performed with the French SA­FIRE aircraft ATR42, and lectures during the training course will address the problem of air-sea interaction, focusing on turbu­lence fluctuations in the near-costal boundary layer, clouds microphysics, atmospheric composition, marine aerosols and the impacts on climate, momentum and heat exchanges at the air/sea interface. Lectures will be alternated with working group sessions on instrument calibration, safety issues and data analysis. Participants will also have the opportunity to visit the Mace Head Atmospheric Research Station.

To achieve the scientific aims of the course, the airborne cam­paign will include data collection of physical quantities relat­ed to turbulent fluctuations, radiative properties and micro­physical properties in the near-coastal boundary layer and in marine clouds.

Data acquired during the training course or archived data will be processed and analysed with the support of ex­perienced users of airborne facilities and form the basis for the final scientific report. Archived data will also be made available.
