EARLINET: towards an advanced sustainable European aerosol lidar network

by Enric Terradellas last modified Aug 11, 2014 10:17 AM

The European Aerosol Research Lidar Network, EARLINET, was founded in 2000 as a research project for establishing a quantitative, comprehensive, and statistically significant database for the horizontal, vertical, and temporal distribution of aerosols on a continental scale. Since then EARLINET has continued to provide the most extensive collection of ground-based data for the aerosol vertical distribution over Europe.

A paper giving an overview of the network's main developments since 2000 has been published in Atmospheric Measurement Techniques. The paper introduces a dedicated EARLINET special issue, which reports on the present innovative and comprehensive technical solutions and scientific results related to the use of advanced lidar remote sensing techniques for the study of aerosol properties as developed within the network in the last 13 years.
