ACTRIS Centre for Aerosol Remote Sensing (CARS) and PROBE CA18235 invite scientists working in the field of aerosol high-power lidars to a training school entitled the " Hands-on training on aerosol lidar measurement quality assurance procedures and tools". The event is organized at Magurele centre for Atmosphere and Radiation Studies (MARS), 2 Atmosferei Str., Magurele, Ilfov, Romania, 27-29 of June 2023.


The three-days hands-on training session focuses on quality assurance procedures for aerosol lidar measurements, using specific hardware tests and the ATLAS tool (Automated Lidar Analysis Software). ATLAS was recently developed by the ACTRIS Centre for Aerosol Remote Sensing and it will be implemented at the ACTRIS aerosol remote sensing National Facilities as the standard software for in-house lidar calibration.
Theoretical sessions are combined with hands-on group work in order to train the operators in:

a)performing the standard quality assurance tests;

  1. b) installing and using the ATLAS tool;
  2. c) understanding and analysing the results of the quality assurance tests. The correct implementation of these procedures and tools enables better controlling the quality of the raw lidar data and allows calculating the instrumental parameters which are further used in the processing chain.


The event will be organized in hybrid format, however only theoretical sessions may be followed online.


Please register at by 2nd of May 2023. The workshop is free of charge.

Travel grants

Up to 10 scientists will be awarded a travel grant (following Cost Action rules) through a commission. If you need travel support, please submit your CV and one-page motivation letter through the registration form.
