Let’s talk about shedding a light on the complex urban atmosphere.

The urban atmosphere can look a bit like a mixing pot. Interactions between the atmospheric boundary layer, developing clouds and city infrastructure, for example, can affect harmful weather and environmental events like urban heat islands and poor air quality. Innovative ways with remote sensing technology make these changes easier to measure and forecast, for greater weather and air quality resilience.

What we’ll cover:


  • Researchers from the University of Freiburg and Vaisala share exclusive findings from two European research projects focused on the atmospheric boundary layer.
  • Discover the newest ways of using remote sensing instruments for urban atmospheric research and air quality monitoring.
  • Find out how to gain the most valuable insights applying state-of-the-art remote sensing instruments, like ceilometers and Doppler wind lidars.



  • Dana Looschelders, Research Assistant and PhD Student at the University of Freiburg Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources
  • Clement Toupoint, Science & Application Engineer at Vaisala’s science team in Saclay, Paris
  • Kanang Sivula, Remote Sensing Application Manager at Vaisala
