Programme:  The entire workshop will be organized as follows:
  1. The workshop is divided into three weeks: Sept. 16, Sept 23, Sept 30, 2013. In each week we compare a defined and limited set of mobility particle size spectrometers.
  2. The spectrometers have to arrive at TROPOS the latest the Friday before.
  3. For each spectrometer, one experienced person has to attend the workshop.
  4. First, all spectrometers will be checked according the ACTRIS technical standard.
  5. Secondly, an intercomparison will be done to verify the status of the mobility particle size spectrometers.
  6. Thirdly, the CPCs will be compared, and subsequently cleaned.
  7. At last, a final intercomparison will be performed.
    Each partner has to organize the shipping to and from TROPOS by themselves. All spectrometers have to be packed properly in hard case boxes.
The workshop planning is available for download as pdf.
