Instruments, calibration, and improved aerosol and cloud retrievals


First announcement


The 2nd Conference on "Advancement of POLarimetric Observations: instruments, calibration, and improved aerosol and cloud retrievals" (APOLO-2019) will take place on 4-8 November 2019 in Lille, France.

The first conference APOLO-2017 was held in Hefei, China from October 24 to 27, 2017.

Scope

The specific topics that will be covered by the conference include (but are not limited to) the following:
  • advances in the theory of polarimetric remote sensing;
  • optimization of strategies of polarimetric Earth observations;
  • scattering of light by terrestrial aerosols and clouds;
  • improvement of polarimetric observation quality and information content;
  • development of advanced retrieval algorithms and data processing; and
  • long-term calibration and validation
