Arctic Lidar Observatory for Middle Atmosphere Research
The 5th IPCC assessment report identifies deficits in the understanding of atmospheric aerosol climate effects as one of the most significant sources of uncertainty in climate predictions.
The main goal of the POLARUBI project is to study the aerosol PM10 fraction in a clean environment located 300 km north of the Arctic Circle.
Our measurements take place at ALOMAR, the Arctic Lidar Observatory for Middle Atmosphere Research. The facility is managed by the Andøya Space Center, and the site is well-suited for measurements of remote background aerosols due to the absence of large regional pollution sources.
The first day of the campaign, we arrived at ALOMAR and assembled the collection system that is now ready for use.
This project results from a collaboration between the University of Beira Interior, the University of Valladolid and ALOMAR.
