"Remote sensing in the O2 A-band"

De Bilt, The Netherlands, 6 - 8 July 2016

Aim of the workshop is to bring together satellite and ground-based O2 A-band observational experts, radiative transfer specialists, and retrieval algorithm developers from different applications, to inform each other about state-of-art methods and observations, and to prepare for the coming years with many more O2 A-band data, especially from satellite.
