ChArMEx campaign is an European integrated measurement campaign, focusing on: 

  • Pollution transport south of Marseille (Fos-Berre region),
  • Situation o f recirculation east of Barcelona.
  • Assimilation of lidar data in an AQM

Selected lidar sites in EARLINET have decided to perform a unique exercise to provide near real time continuous lidar data for the assimilation. Three days and nights of continuous measurements are performed starting July 9, 06:00 UT, up to July 12, 05:59 UT. One hour time series are submitted to the EARLINET Single Calculus Chain, in order to be pre-processed in an homogeneous way. Preliminary results will be presented at the EARLINET meeting, Lecce, October 2012.
