Data and Services for the Atmosphere

The AERIS atmosphere Data and Services Centre federates national data management activities and atmospheric science expertise.

Whether data from long-term observation sites recording the causes and signs of climate change, the results of major field or aerial surveys to better understand the chemistry and physics of our atmosphere, measurements from satellites that constantly observe and probe Earth and its atmosphere, or the results of laboratory experiments, all atmospheric research data are intended to be stored, distributed and combined by AERIS.

AERIS also provides support to scientists through a continuous open call for projects. If you would like to know more, go here.



The VOLCPLUME project: a unique platform for the monitoring and 4D analysis of volcanic plumes

Initially developed at the LOA, Laboratoire d’Optique Atmosphérique de Lille (LOA), within the framework of the VOLCPLUME project financed by the French National Research Agency (ANR-15-CE04-0003) and coordinated by Marie Boichu, the platform project that bears the same name, VOLCPLUME, has been taken up and further developed by the AERIS/ICARE Data and Services Centre since […]


Monitoring ozone in the atmosphere

The role of ozone in the atmosphere on life on Earth varies greatly depending on the altitude at which it is observed.At high altitudes, stratospheric ozone absorbs much of the ultraviolet radiation and protects us from the harmful effects of the sun. The destruction of the ozone layer by chlorinated chemicals, commonly known as the […]


Two new IASI products available on AERIS: the greenhouse gases CH4 and CO2

Atmospheric methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) columns have been produced from a non-linear inference algorithm and radiances measured by the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) and Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) on board the Metop-A and B platforms. The retrievals are performed for clear sky situations over land and sea, day and night, at […]

Aerosols and Covid 19

This year, the European Aerosol Conference is organising a special session: “Aerosols and Covid 19” dedicated to research on different aspects of the role of aerosol particles in understanding the propagation of COVID-19 and its links to indoor and ambient air quality and health. Professor José-Luis Jimenez will be the keynote speaker for this session. […]

2nd Climate Observation Conference

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS), with the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), and supported by European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) will be holding a conference that aims to assess how well the current global climate observing system supports current and near-term user needs for climate information. The outputs will provide inputs […]
