Information - GI2 Atmospheric and Meteorological Instruments (co-listed in AS, CL, OS, PS & ST)
The session is meant to encourage presentations and discussions that span different measurement approaches and the diverse needs of the atmosperic sciences to understand and characterize the atmosphere. This session will also function as a community forum for presentations on new observational capabilities, novel measurement strategies and new research directions in the observational sciences.
Submissions to this session are encouraged that:
i) Demonstrate advances in the development of new atmospheric instrumentation and analysis techniques. These advances can utilize remote, in-situ or integrated sensing approaches.
ii) Present newly developed and planned airborne atmospheric research platforms and community instrumentation capabilities.
iii) Discuss upcoming major international field campaigns and observational research programs.
iv) Demonstrate advances in scientific understanding (or the potential for such advances) resulting from new instrumentation and novel observational approaches.
v) Discuss the need for new observational strategies to address societal needs in areas such as monitoring climate change, predicting high-impact weather events and atmospheric air quality.
It is hoped that this broad session, with sponsorship from the AS, CL, OS, PS and ST divisions will encourage sharing knowledge across disciplines and measurement approaches.
