The 2nd CINDI-2 (Second Cabauw Intercomparison of Nitrogen Dioxide Measuring Instruments) Workshop was held at Hotel dasMEI in Mutters, Austria from 14 to 15 March 2018. The Workshop, locally organised by the LuftBlick Company (Alexander Cede and his team) under the auspices of ESA, gathered ~40 scientists from all around the World (see list of participants here) to present and discuss the current status of the CINDI-2 campaign results.
