RADO Laboratory


Our main objective is to research the composition of the lower atmosphere (aerosols and gases). Atmospheric processes are also investigated such as gas and aerosol dynamics, radiative effects, effects on climate and cloud formation.


Research activities

Vertical atmospheric profiles;

Detection and characterization of natural and anthropogenic atmospheric aerosols;

Mapping of key parameters of air quality;

Atmospheric radiative transfer;

Risk and impact assessment of atmospheric aerosols;



Multiwavelength Raman LIDAR (EARLINET member);

Sun Photometer (NASA AERONET member);

In situ PM Monitor;

Ambient Ozone Monitor;

UV and IR SO2 cameras;
