Passive remote sensing laboratory

Passive Remote sensing laboratory includes experimental IR & UV cameras for SO2 concentration, an 8-channels sunphotometer, microwave radiometer and real time satellite images through Eumetcast. Profiles of temperature and humidity are correlated with lidars data, as well as AERONET...

Microwave Radiometer Profiler - MIKE

Thumbnail

The instrument uses the microwave passive remote sensing in UV to retrieve atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles.

The Radiometer is a stand-alone system for automated weather-station use under nearly all environmental conditions. Full atmospheric profiles are derived, retrieved data, as...

Automatic sun tracking photometer

Thumbnail

The CE 318 automatic sun tracking photometer measures sun and sky radiance in order to derive total column water vapor, ozone and aerosols properties using a combination of spectral filters and azimuth/zenith viewing controlled by a microprocessor.

The sun photometer is composed of an optical...

IR camera

Thumbnail

The IR camera is used to view the sky overhead for studies of clouds and has a single pass band (~8–14 µm).  The calibration error of this instrument is reported to be 0.5 W m-2 sr-1 or about 2% of the ambient radiance and also show that the micro bolometer is sensitive at low temperatures (2...

UV camera

Thumbnail

The Ultra-violet imaging camera is a scientific instrument for use in identifying and measuring polluting gases in the troposphere.  The camera consists of a highly sensitive CCD array (1344 x 1024 pixels). The ultra-violet region of the electromagnetic spectrum can be exploited to measure...
