MASOMED field and airborne campaign (Camarena, Madrid, Spain, 03-19 May 2017), funded by EUFAR Transnational Access and jointly organized by the GFZ in Germany, CIEMAT and INTA in Spain, aimed at mapping soil variability and quality...
PRE-TECT is an atmospheric experiment organized by the National Observatory of Athens aiming to advance desert dust microphysical characterization from advanced ground-based remote sensing and airborne measurements.
After a lengthy period of negotiation, 8 European institutions representing 6 different countries involved in airborne environmental research have signed the necessary Statutes to constitute EUFAR as an AISBL – an international non-profit association under Belgian law. These documents will now be deposited with the Belgian courts so that EUFAR AISBL will be formally constituted early in 2018.
Philip Brown (Met Office, UK), the EUFAR scientific coordinator, and the EUFAR bureau published a 2-page article on EUFAR and its support to the airborne research community in the Adjacent Open Access journal, August 2017 edition.
39 participants from 12 nations and 26 institutions participated in the EUFAR/IAMAS/IUGG/ICCP Workshop on Processing of Cloud Particle Measurements at German Aerospace Center (DLR) Oberpfaffenhofen, from 7 to 9 July 2017. Its aims were to discuss, optimize and harmonize cloud data analysis in order to augment data quality of current optical array probes employed on aircraft.
