The atmospheric science research group at Luleå University of Technology has an open PhD position at the Campus in Kiruna, Sweden.
The project consists of two, closely related parts. In-situ measurements on cirrus clouds which will provide a database of various microphysical properties of cirrus particles, providing optical properties which are relevant for lidar observations. The second part will focus on measurements with a ground-based lidar, located at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF) in Kiruna. Parameters from the database of microphysical properties will be utilised to analyse lidar observations. The resulting cirrus properties in turn will be compared with data products from the ATLID instrument on the EarthCARE satellite, the goal being validation of ATLID data products.
