A new approach to obtain profiles of aerosol single-scattering properties - WP2 - Impact of absorbing aerosols on radiative forcing in the European Arctic (iAREA - WP2)

This field campaign is created under iAREA project, which arose in order to contribute to new knowledge on the impact of absorbing aerosols on the climate system in the European Arctic. The main scope of this field campaign will be a retrieval of aerosol single scattering properties from tethered balloon observations and remote sensing measurements

The objective of this field campaign is to enhance new methods to retrieve aerosol single scattering properties from ground-based remote sensing measurements and in-situ observations. During field work we will use vertical profiles of aerosols properties derived from Near-range Aerosol Raman lidar (NARLa) as well as the Koldewey Aerosol Raman Lidar (KARL) maintained by the AWI scientific group. Moreover, micro Aethalometer AE51, mini particle counter miniHendiLaz, goPro Camera and Vaisala RS92 Radiosonde will be attached to a tethered balloon system (iCAP) providing measurements of vertical profiles of Black Carbon concentration, weather conditions as well as aerosol size distribution. We believe that the synergy of the data obtained from in-situ and remote sensing instruments will improve techniques to measure and retrieve aerosol optical properties, with an emphasis put on the absorbing aerosols.
