Lunar AOD intercomparison campaign (Lunar AOD)

We want to compare several state of the art moon photometers in Ny-Alesund and compare them with existing aerosol measurements during Polar night 2020. The aim is to understand the technical error sources and derive a quality assured data set on AOD during Polar night.

Great to see you here!

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

We will bring moon photometers from different manufacturers to Ny-Alesund and compare them to the exisitng instruments during the full moon cacle around 9 Feb 2020. The comparison will be made with existing photometers, lidar, aerosol in situ measurements and basic meteorology. This effort should promote Ny_Alesund as an test site and also connect to night-time aerosol measurements on Polarstern during MOSAiC. This campaign will be international. From the Ny-Alesund stations at least AWIPEV and CNR-Italy are participating.
