Tracking emission sources by remote sensing of the atmospheric composition

Datum: 17 december 2015

Locatie: Universiteit Antwerpen, Campus Groenenborger, Gebouw T, Auditorium T105 - Groenenborgerlaan 171 - 2020 Antwerpen

Tijdstip: 16 - 18 uur

Organisatie / co-organisatie: Physics Colloquia

Korte beschrijving: Lecture by Dr Martine De Maziere (UAntwerp Alumna, Head of Department at the Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy) on her research in aeronomy (the study of the upper atmosphere)

About the lecture
The presentation will explain the principles of remote sensing of the atmospheric composition and its  application to greenhouse gas and air quality measurements. Using inverse modeling techniques, we can derive so-called top-down emissions and make the distinction between various sources of emission like fires and human activity.
