The AERIS data and services centre for the atmosphere federates at the national level data management activities and scientific expertise in the atmosphere.
Whether it is data from long-term observation sites that record the causes and signs of climate change, the results of major field or airborne campaigns to better understand the chemistry and physics of our atmosphere, measurements from satellites that constantly observe and probe it, or even the results of laboratory experiments, all atmospheric research data is intended to be stored, distributed and combined by the AERIS centre. More information.
AERIS is also responsible for providing support to scientists via a continuous open call for projects. Would you like to know more? Click here!
AERIS takes part in the Sargassum chase
In frame of the SAREDA (SArgassum Evolving Distribution in the Atlantic) project, the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanology (MIO), in collaboration with LIS, HYGEOS and AERIS/ICARE, has set up a system for monitoring Sargassum in the Atlantic Ocean using spatial data from NASA’s MODIS instrument. The objective of this project is the operationalization of a processing […]
AERIS partner in the C3IEL mission
As part of the future C3IEL space mission, the CNES has chosen to entrust AERIS with the operation of the French part of the data processing and distribution centre. C3IEL (Cluster for Cloud Evolution, ClimatE and Lightning) is a joint space mission between the French (CNES) and the Israeli (ISA) space agencies. It relies on […]
Recent progress of the AERUS-GEO project for global observation of aerosols from geostationary satellites
Over past years CNRM has developed with support from AERIS/ICARE the AERUS-GEO suite of Aerosols and Surface properties products (https://www.icare.univ-lille.fr/projects/user-driven-projects/aerus-geo/). Initially aimed at providing a daily averaged Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) from SEVIRI sensors aboard the MSG satelliteseries, the project is now about to provide retrievals of aerosol properties at 15-min intervals thanks to the new i-AERUS-GEO algorithm (currently under validation). Also, thanks to […]
