The Airborne ROmanian Measurements of Aerosols and Trace gases (AROMAT) campaign was held in Romania during the first two weeks of September 2014. AROMAT took place in the framework of the ESA Copernicus Earth observation programme and was coordinated by BIRA. AROMAT included seven other research institutions from Romania (University of Galati, INOE, and INCAS), Germany (Universities of Bremen, Berlin, and MPIC) and the Netherlands (KNMI).
The objectives of the AROMAT activity are (i) to test recently developed airborne observation systems dedicated to air quality satellite validation studies such as the AirMap (university of Bremen), the NO2 sonde (KNMI), and SWING (BIRA), and (ii) to prepare forthcoming intercomparison/S5p validation campaigns that may also be scheduled in Romania.
