We would like to promote recent advances in profiling the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) using ground-based remote sensing and instrument networks.
Why all this? to facilitate knowledge exchange between all actors concerned with ABL profiling. We aim at highlighting new developments in measurement technology and advanced products. We would like to discuss how new profiling observations will impact various applications like weather, hydrology, climate, air quality, transportations, renewable energy, agriculture, and environmental hazards.
For whom is this? Do you work with individual ABL profilers (incl. wind, cloud, aerosol, temperature, and humidity) or are you part of a network? Maybe you develop advanced products and tools (e.g. clouds and precipitation, forecast indices, fog and icing alerts, aerosols and air quality, wind and turbulence/gusts and ABL characterization) or applications for model assessment, data assimilation, nowcasting, climate simulations, and satellite data validation? then this session is for you! Special interest is placed on work reporting on the ABL in specific environments, such as complex terrain, coastal locations, or cities.
Are you ECI/ITC? We particularly encourage submissions from early career investigators (ECI) or Innovators (under the age of 40) from the Inclusiveness target country (ITC) (see the list at https://www.cost.eu/about/cost-strategy/excellence-and-inclusiveness/). If you are an ECI, and work in a ITC country, you are eligible to apply for the PROBE conference grant to cover your on-site or online conference attendance (details will be published on the PROBE web pages soon).
