ACTRIS centre for Aerosol Remote Sensing (CARS) and the Aerosol Remote Sensing unit of the ACTRIS Data Centre (ARES) organizes a joint workshop on 27 October 2022, as part of the ACTRIS Week. The workshop is organized in hybrid format, however we encourage the community to join us physically in Prague.

The focus of the workshop is to present the new developments at CARS and ARES, and to discuss the current status of the aerosol remote sensing instruments and data products, in view of the upcoming NF labelling. PIs of the future aerosol remote sensing National Facilities are invited to participate, together with their teams, as well as any member of the aerosol remote sensing community who is interested in the topics. Please register via the ACTRIS Week registration platform.
