SaTellite pRoducts vAlidaTion USing ground based lidar stations

SaTellite pRoducts vAlidaTion USing ground based lidar stations Acronym: STRATUS The main goal of the project is to offer the means to validate and calibrate satellite observations by offering a wide range of ground based unbiased atmospheric products over extended time scales and monitor the stability of satellite products over the envisaged locations. Calibration-validation (CAL-VAL) activities are provisioned for the future ESA Earth Observation missions (Sentinel 5, 5P, ADM-AEOLUS). Duration of the project: 2017-2019 Funding: Romanian Space Agency – STAR

Intelligent Software for Aerosol typing Based on Earth observation products, remote sensing measurements and transport modelLing

Intelligent Software for Aerosol typing Based on Earth observation products, remote sensing measurements and transport modelLing Acronym: ISABEL The general goal of this project is to increase the Romanian scientific contributions to ESA’s EOEP-4 CAL-VAL activities in support of Sentinels (3, 4, 5 and 5P), EarthCARE and ADM-Aeolus missions. This will be done by the development a new intelligent aerosol typing software based on neural networks and combining the aerosols measurements, synthetic aerosols and transport modelling. ISABEL software design is

SAtellite based Monitoring Initiative for Regional Air quality

Project title: SAtellite based Monitoring Initiative for Regional Air quality Acronym: SAMIRA General description The project aims at improving regional and local air quality monitoring through synergetic use of data from present and upcoming earth observation satellites, traditionally used in situ air quality monitoring networks and output from chemical transport models. Duration of the project: 2016-2019. Funding: ESA/ESRIN. UBB partner resonsible: Assit. Prof. Dr. Nicolae Ajtai Partners: Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU), Norway Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania INOE2000

ASSESSMENT OF THE GENOTOXIC EFFECTS RELATED TO CHRONIC LOW-DOSE IONISING RADIATION EXPOSURE IN POPULATION FROM BĂIȚA-ȘTEI URANIUM MINE AREA

The aim of the project is to provide data on the genetic hazards due to environmental exposure of low doses of ionizing radiation in population residing near the depleted Băița-Ştei uranium mine (Bihor County). For this purpose, two main objectives will be achieved, consisting in the accurate assessment of the annual effective dose for the population under study as well as the rigorously evaluation of the DNA damage in lymphocytes induced by radiation using the alkaline comet assay and the
