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 Programme – Earth Observation

UBB partner resonsible: Assit. Prof. Dr. Nicolae Ajtai

Partners:

  • INOE 2000 – N. I. of R&D for Optoelectronics, Măgurele, Romania (CO)
  • Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania (P1)

Expected Results:

  • Satellite and their products description;
  • Ground based lidar stations and associated products description;
  • Data-base containing correlative measurements;
  • Evolution and stability in time of satellites products;
