Airborne data


The project IAGOS (In-service Aircraft for a Global Observing System) is an European Research Infrastructure (ESFRI Roadmap 2006) conducting global longterm observations of atmospheric composition (reactives and greenhouse gases, aerosols, cloud particles) on a fleet of commercial aircraft of international operating airlines. IAGOS is an CNRS-INSU Observation Service since 1994 and a CNRS Research Infrastructure […]


The balloon data The French Space Agency (CNES) has been supporting scientific ballooning since its establishment, particularly in atmospheric science measurements, currently launching about 50 balloons a year. Balloon platforms offer excellent opportunities for scientific exploration, particularly for atmospheric observations that look through the atmosphere, and for astrophysical observations from above the atmosphere. To conduct […]


The project Since the 1950s, the French research organizations have equipped aircraft to measure the atmosphere during experimental campaigns. These measurements were recorded in digital form, since the 1980s. Safire portal’s main objective is to dig up old archives, collected with the Fokker – 27 ‘ARAT’ and Merlin IV aircraft, then to make them available […]
