A new session, Remote Sensing of Clouds and Aerosols: Techniques and Applications (AS1.6), will be convened at the upcoming European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly in Vienna, Austria, April 19-24, 2009. While the existing session "Clouds, Aerosols, and Radiation" has been very successful in bringing together theory, observations, and modeling in a climatological context, the details of retrieval techniques and new methods often seemed too specific for this general session.
This new session aims to provide a forum specifically for the discussion of retrieval techniques in cloud and aerosol remote sensing, as well as their application. Contributions examining multi-sensor combinations, as well as joint investigations of ground-based and satellite-based retrievals, are especially being encouraged. Deadline for the submission of abstracts using the online submission
system is January 13, 2009. To submit, see the meeting website.
