 Introduction 

The 3rd CINDI-2 (Second Cabauw Intercomparison of Nitrogen Dioxide Measuring Instruments) Workshop will be held on 26-27 February 2019 (from Tue 09:00 to Wed 13:00) at ESA/ESRIN, Frascati (Italy). This Workshop will cover the following topics:

*MAX-DOAS profiling results (aerosols, NO2, HCHO, HONO, tropospheric O3,...) and comparison with ancillary observations

*Semi-blind SCD intercomparison exercise

*Results from other viewing geometries, e.g. direct-sun, zenith-sky, imaging DOAS, etc.

*New MAX-DOAS algorithm developments: e.g. new profiling algorithms, new approaches for quality control flagging, O4 scaling factor treatment, detection and characterisation of clouds, etc.

*Ancillary observations (in-situ, lidar, sondes, CAPS, CE-DOAS, LP-DOAS, miniaturized sensors, mobile DOAS, etc)

*Modelling activities and comparison with MAX-DOAS observations

*Other science topics: e.g. CHOCHO, water vapor, azimuth dependence related to horizontal variability, etc.

*Current and future activities/topics related to CINDI-2: FRM4DOAS, S5P Validation Campaign, CINDI-3, rules and procedures for NDACC certification, etc.

 

 Call for presentations 

We would like to invite all people interested in presenting their most recent CINDI-2 results to send to François Hendrick (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) with Angelika Dehn (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) in cc a tentative title of their presentation(s) by Friday 18/01/2019 at the very latest. MAX-DOAS contributions not related to CINDI-2 are also very welcome. Although it is planned to have mostly oral presentations, there is room for a few (5-8) poster contributions. If you plan to attend the Workshop without presentation, please also inform us by this date.

 

 Workshop logistics 

Venue

The 3rd CINDI-2 Workshop will be kindly hosted by the European Space Agency (ESA) Centre for Earth Observation (also known as the European Space Research Institute or ESRIN) located in Frascati (Rome area), Italy. Information on how to get to ESRIN can be found here.

 

Hotels and Transport

A number of rooms have been pre-booked for the participants at special rates in several local hotels and can be reserved on a first come / first served basis using the reservation form available here. There will be a courtesy bus that will take you from Piazza Marconi (Frascati) to ESRIN and back. Schedule information will be provided closer in time to the Workshop. Taxi from Rome airports to Frascati can also be booked via the hotel reservation form (see link above). Participants can of course also do their own hotel booking.
