Rome , October 2017: 1st International Campaign for studying quality and traceabiliy of atmospheric aerosol measurements
Measurement traceability and data quality are essential requirements by the WMO for monitoring atmospheric aerosol optical properties by International radiometer networks.
ISAC is organizing, during October 2017, the 1st International Campaign QUATRAM (QUAlity and TRaceabiliy of Atmospheric aerosol Measurements) aimed to: 1) intercalibration among WMO standard instruments (as defined by CIMO http://www.wmo.int/pages/prog/www/IMOP/CIMO-Guide.htm) and radiometers also from several international networks; 2) intercomparison of atmospheric aerosol properties measured by equipment of different manufactories.
The Campaign is hosted by the G24 Group of The Physic Department of the University of Rome La Sapienza in the center of Rome, and born thanks to an Agreement of cooperation between ISAC and the Physikalisch- Meteorologisches Obervatorium of Davos, of the World Radiation Center (PMOD/WRC)
Several National and International Institutions are involved:
ISAC-CNR, leading the program (M. Campanelli),
University of Rome La Sapienza, hosting the Campaign SERCO, PMOD/WRC, Italian Air Force, University of Valencia , ARPA Valle d’Aosta, ENEA, ESRIN.
