"Remote sensing in the O2 A-band"
De Bilt, The Netherlands, 6 - 8 July 2016Aim 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.

- On Friday 8 July, there is the option to go to the Kroller-Muller museum in Otterlo (1 hour from De Bilt). There is a Van Gogh exhibition and a sculpture garden in the middle of the forest. The excursion will cost about 30 Euro per person. Please let us know if you are interested to join the excursion, by 24 June at the latest.
- Spectroscopy of the O2 A-band
- Radiative transfer modelling of the O2 A-band, e.g. multiple scattering, diffusion theory, 3D effects, k-distributions
- Information content of the O2 A-band
- Retrieval or inversion techniques for the O2 A-band
- Ground-based observations
- Satellite observations
- New instruments and satellite missions
- Applications of the O2 A-band, including but not limited to:
- Clouds: height, geometrical thickness and multi-layer retrievals
- Aerosol height retrieval
- Surface pressure retrieval
- Fluorescence retrieval
- Light path correction for greenhouse gas retrievals
- Validation of O2 A-band retrievals.
- Similarly for other O2 absorption bands, like the O2 B-band, the O2 gamma band, and the O2-O2 collision complex bands.
The workshop will have the format of a 3-day plenary meeting, with 20-minute oral presentations and posters. There will be sufficient time allocated for discussions.
The workshop is by invitation only; the maximum number of participants is 75. No fee will be required, but participants are required to fund their own travel, hotel, and daily expenses.
