Tropospheric aerosol observations by FTIR spectrometry

Updated 2003-03-06

Study aerosol properties (size and composition) in the infrared spectral region

Comments and additional information:

In 2003 the aim of the project is to study the seasonal variability of the radiative properties of tropospheric aerosols using FTIR emission spectroscopy. Furthermore, the height distribution of aerosols and their composition will be investigated. During intense campaigns the observations are performed by the project scientist. For the rest of the year the spectra are recorded within the NDSC activities by the NDSC-engineer at the station typically once per month.
