STCE Workshop - Retrieval of Aerosol Properties from Satellite and Ground-Based Measurements

Thursday May 24, 2012 - Green room at BIRA, 9:15 - 13:00

In the framework of the STCE-2012 annual meeting, we organize the STCE-2012 Aerosol workshop. The goal of this workshop Anyone who is interested in attending this workshop is kindly asked to fill out the doodle poll at before May 23, 2012. If you would like to give a presentation, please send the title of your presentation and a short description of your research as soon as possible at svetlana.kochenova at

We are looking forward to see you at this workshop.
Svetlana Kochenova, on behalf of the participating scientists.
