BCS Bedford Event - Instrumentation and Computation to understand earth’s atmosphere - 22 Oct 2013

Joint BCS, RAeS and IET - FREE Event  

Jamie Trembath, Aerosol Instrument Scientist and Deputy Instrument Manager at FAAM speaking.  

Title: Instrumentation and computation to understand earth’s atmosphere 

Date: Tuesday, 22 Oct 2013. Arrive 6.00 for 6.30pm start.

The talk may also help understand the issues and effect of the 'Ash Clouds'.

The Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements has been operational since 2004 and operates a BAe-146-301 large atmospheric research aircraft from Cranfield, UK. The lecture gives an overview on the aircraft and its limits of operation, the instrumentation packages deployed, their operation and the modular nature of the overall science payload as well as the provision of data to the science community. The relevance of that data and how it can be used is investigated by examining three recent science case studies from the South Equatorial Pacific, the Eyjafjallajökull volcano and the Elgin rig gas leak.
