2015 ACAM Training School
Satellite and Model Data use for Aerosols and Air Quality
11-12 June 2015, Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Bangkok Thailand

The “Satellite and Model Data use for Aerosols and Air Quality” training school will be held in Bangkok during 11-12 June 2015. This training event is organized within the framework of the Atmospheric Composition and Asian Summer Monsoon (ACAM) initiative, jointly sponsored by IGAC and SPARC. Specific goals of the event include building the capacity and training of early career scientists in Asia for effective utilization of satellite retrievals and model data relevant to studying aerosols and air quality in Asia, particularly in connection with the Asian monsoon. The 2-day event will bring together international experts in satellite remote sensing and modeling to provide focused tutorials on topics related to aerosols, air quality, trace gases, emissions and transport. This event is organized from ACAM Working Group-IV, focused on developing the talent and expertise of ACAM scientists for utilizing community models and satellite data products for ACAM research; and will be preceded by the 2nd ACAM workshop, 8-10 June, Bangkok.

Instructors: Mary Barth (NCAR), Ritesh Gautam (IIT Bombay), Cathy Clerbaux (LATMOS/IPSL), Federico Fierli (ISAC/CNR), Sachin Ghude (IITM/Pune), Pawan Gupta (NASA/GSFC), Prabir Patra (JAMSTEC), Gabriele Stiller (KIT), Mark Lawrence (IASS/Potsdam).
