After the measurements comes the valorisation of the measurements.

In that respect, we are pleased to inform you of the opening of the joint ACP and AMT ChArMEx Special Issue for about 2 years:

1st Lampedusa Data International Workshop

Tuesday, 05 November 2013 10:33

Following the First ChArMEx Special Observing Period (SOP1-a) in June-July 2013, the First international “Lampedusa” data workshop has been held at the Laboratoire Interuniversitaire des Systèmes Atmosphériques in Créteil on 24-25 October 2013

As a supersite of the ChArmex SOP1-a, the ENEA Laboratory for Climate Study “Roberto Sarao” (WMO/GAW/NDACC) on the Island of Lampedusa (35°31'N, 12°37°E) has been augmented by the PEGASUS mobile station developed by LISA to investigate the in situ properties of aerosols and trace gases of various origins (pollution, marine, mineral dust, biomass burning). The ground-based measurements have been completed by several coordinated overpasses of the ATR-42 and the F20 of SAFIRE.

The goal of the two-day workshop was to summarize the main achievements of the field campaign and to implement the scientific strategy for their exploitation and valorization through peer-review papers and international conferences.

The workshop has gathered together scientists from various laboratories in France (LISA, LA, LOA, IrceLyon, LSCE, CNRM, LATMOS, LPCA), Italy (the Unit for Environment and Energy Modeling of ENEA, the Environmental and Health Physics Laboratory of the University of Genoa), Spain (University of Valencia) and Switzerland (World Radiation Center).


Twenty presentations have been discussed. First results indicate that the campaign has been very successful in terms of number and quality of the acquisition. The dataset has been constituted and it will be made available to the ChArMEx community via the dedicated database. A number of case studies of long-range transport of different aerosol types (pollution, biomass burning and mineral dust) and their mixing have been identified and will be retained for further analysis.

 To keep the momentum on the analysis, the consortium has agreed to meet again towards the end of the first semester 2014. The participation at the ChArMEx conferences and meetings will also be pursued.

Following the 2013 ChArMEx Special Observation Period (June-Aug. 2013) a 2-
days debriefing workshop will be held in Paris on September 16& 17 2013.

The workshop will take place at the Ballon de Paris Conference Room, Parc André Citroën, Paris 15 (Metro Javel).


The goal of this workshop is to :

  • Measure progress of ongoing actions (2012 campaign & WPs)
  • Summarize main achievements of the 2013 campaign
  • Find the best opportunities for data valorization
  • Sketch-out 2014 experimental plans   
  • Discuss & agree mid term objectives & strategies

and last, enjoy one of the most beautiful view over Paris onboard the balloon of the Observatoire Atmospherique Generali.

Looking forward seeing you in Paris

Charmexly yours,
