The project organigram was published to highlight the interplay of the Climate Research User Group with the EO Science Team, the Valdiation Team and the System Engineerng Team. Read more »

new options added to the project

A set of option proposed together with the original baseline proposal have been accepted by ESA (some with upgrades / adjustments) and are now included into the project. This set comprises of: Read more »

Technical documents have ben completed

The set of technical documents within the Aerosol_cci project has been completed.

This includes the algorithm descriptions, the input/output descriptions, the detailed processing model description and the overall system prototype description. These documents can be downloaded from the deliverable section of the documents.

One further revision is scheduled for this summer.

Ninth progress meeting

The ninth progress meetign will be held at ECMWF - the primary potential user of Aerosol_cci level2 data for assimilation into their atmospheric composition system (GMES MACC). At this stage the ECV products for 1 year will be available together with their initial valdiation, so that their use can be concretely discussed.

Second annual progress meeting

The second annual progress meeting will take place at ESA-ESRIN on 26+27 July 2012.

Major progress in period 2 was to complete the round robin datasets production and their evaluation together with a set of system engineering and (future oeprational) system specification documents.

The annual review will summarize and assess the rpogress made in the second year and take the outlook to the third year.

System Specification Document (SSD0) accepted

The first iteration of the system specification document derived from the system requirements document was accepted.
 
Within this document a first system specification of the operational Aerosol_CCI system is presented. It includes scenario descriptions, interface descriptions and hardware considerations. A trade-off analysis and first cost estimation comparing a centralised and decentralised approach are made.
 

The first quarterly report in 2012 has been published

The report can be found under following link

Product Validation and Selection Report (PVASR) accepted

One of the crucial documents, which summarizes the validation of round robin datasets produced with the precursor algorithms participating in the Aerosol_cci project, was accepted.

The deliverable with corresponding attachments can be found under / documents / public / Accepted deliverable versions. Read more »

The sixth progress meeting of Aerosol_cci was hosted by Finish Meteorological Institute (FMI) at Helsinki on 02-03 February 2012

The participants concluded that the meeting achieved a good conclusion of the algorithm validation and selection process and worked out a clear planning for next steps.
