Networking Observations

Since September 30, 2013 a year-round database of in situ and vertically resolved observations of Saharan dust events will be collected to guide the improvement of the current EU methodology of Saharan dust detection and quantification towards the final ‘DIAPASON Methodology’. 

During this one-year, two intensive observation periods will be selected involving all interested DIAPASON network participants. 

To extend the DIAPASON potential, additional, coordinated measurements from interested Scientific Research Institutions, Stakeholders, and Networked groups are welcome: please contact us to join the DIAPASON observations!


Details about observations are available here
