The 38th annual European Meeting on Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods will be organised jointly by the Arctic Research group of the Finnish Meteorological Institute, the University of Oulu Space Research Group and Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory, at Siuntio Wellness and Conference Resort, Finland, 22-26 August 2011.
Optical methods have been used for studies of the atmosphere for centuries. A wealth of information about the whole atmosphere, from the troposphere to the thermosphere, can be obtained by active or passive optical measurements. Recent technological developments have also opened up a panorama of new possibilities for high-resolution measurements and measurements coordinated with other types of instruments.
The Annual European Meetings on Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods bring together scientists from Europe as well as from other parts of the world to exchange experience, share scientific results, and plan and coordinate future experiments.
Intercalibration of light standards will also again take place during this meeting. Thus participants can bring their own light sources to calibrate.
Deadline: 31st May 2011 (Registration and abstract submission; deadline extended on 5th May 2011).
