AEROSAT International Satellite Aerosol Science Network
To coordinate active collaboration of the satellite aerosol community with other aerosol communities:
AEROSAT has been founded as open and unfunded network of satellite aerosol scientists during the 10th AEROCOM workshop on 27 September 2013 - AEROSAT will have its first fully open meeting on 27/28 September 2014 in coordination with the 2014 AEROCOM workshop. It is essential to understand that satellite datasets, various ground-based measurements (+ airborne campaign data) and model output are complementary to each other. Therefore, an active collaboration among these communities needs to be fostered. AEROSAT aims to assure such an exchange beyond the multiple bilateral collaborations that are already taking place.
To achieve this goal, the AEROSAT External Coordination working group will continuously pursue its activities and report at each annual AEROSAT meeting. Activities to be conducted include:
