CINDI campaign

The CINDI campaign (Cabauw Intercomparison Campaign of Nitrogen Dioxide measuring Instruments) is a CEOS, GEOMON and NDACC initiative. It takes place in Cabauw (52 N, 5 E), The Netherlands, during June-July 2009 (

The main objective of this campaign is to intercompare the NO2 measuring instruments that can be used for validation of tropospheric NO2 from satellites. The campaign should result in an estimate of the accuracy of the NO2 tropospheric columns and profiles for the participating instruments under different atmospheric conditions (clouds/aerosols) and viewing geometries. Many different in-situ and remote sensing instruments will participate. Apart from NO2, other parameters will be measured and intercompared, among which O3, aerosol, HCHO, CHOCHO, and BrO.

BIRA-IASB participates to this campaign with several instruments:

  • a MAXDOAS (300-700 nm)
  • a MiniDOAS (290-435 nm)
  • a MobileDOAS
