The 8th International DOAS Workshop will be held
from 4 to 6 September 2017,
at Yokohama Port Opening Memorial Hall, Yokohama, Japan


News Scope

The workshop is dedicated to recent advances in the DOAS (Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy) research, from instrumental and algorithmic developments to applications in various fields of atmospheric research. Contributions - oral and poster presentations - about the following topics are particularly welcome:
  • New concepts and related technologies (e.g. UAVs, Imaging DOAS, Cavity DOAS, 3D MAX-DOAS, DIAL)
  • Progress in DOAS analysis (including spectral inversion and profiling techniques)
  • Improvements in radiative transfer simulations (e.g., aerosol and cloud applications and their impact on trace gas retrievals)
  • Improvements in satellite retrievals, preparations for upcoming missions (e.g. S5P/TROPOMI)
  • Observations from various platforms (e.g. ground-based, cars, aircraft, balloons, satellites, ships, UAVs), their synergistic use, comparisons with chemical transport model simulations, data assimilation
  • Network development (e.g. NDACC, PANDORA, NOVAC, MADRAS, SKYNET) and harmonization (e.g., intercomparison campaigns such as CINDI-2)
  • DOAS and atmospheric/geo chemistry (e.g. air pollution monitoring, volcanic studies, flux investigations, stratospheric chemistry, carbon cycle, halogen chemistry)
