13-17 september 2010: joint workshop on Earth Radiation Budget (ERB)

The MT team hosted a joint workshop on Earth Radiation Budget (ERB), with the CERES, GERB and ScaRaB science teams,  on 13-16 September 2010 in Paris, at ENS, France. The purpose of this workshop was to bring the CERES, GERB, ScaRaB and modeling communities together in order to maximize the exchange of information and ideas on this critically important area of Earth science.

1-31st august 2010 :MT prelaunch campaign in Africa

As part of MT Ground Validation activities apre-launch campaign was held this summer over our  GV super-site, in Niger. We used  an instrumented aircraft  in combination with  two ground based weather RADAR, to get new insights in the microphysics of the Mesoscale Convective Systems that propagate in West Africa.

The main objective of this campaign was to get some upgraded information on the radiative properties of the icy hydrometeors   that the MT MADRAS radiometer will be sensing over  the continental Tropics.

Altogether 11 successful flights occurred ;the preliminary feedbacks from the campaign are very positive and the whole team is now very busy processing the data  !

We would like to thank again all our international partners and sponsors.

July 2010: 13th Conference on Atmospheric Radiation and workshop on Continuity of Earth Radiation
The 13th Conference on Atmospheric Radiation which is sponsored

The 13th Conference on Atmospheric Radiation which is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Committee on Atmospheric Radiation was held 28 June-2 July 2010 in Portland, Oregon. Olivier Chomette was present for an oral presentation (title : ScaRaB on the Megha-Tropiques mission where the ScaRaB instrument, the products and the validation processes were presented.

NCDC (Asheville - NC) hosted a two-day workshop (July 13-14) on Continuity of Earth Radiation Budget (CERB) Observations where the post-CERES Requirements were discussed. Olivier Chomette attended this workshop. The discussions will be summarized in a report scheduled for the end of September.
