Remote sensing of trace gases from ground and space based instruments

Dr. Leif Vogel
Earth Observation Science Group,Space Research Centre, University Leicester, UK  


Remote sensing of the atmosphere is an invaluable tool to understand the earth’s atmosphere. The talk gives an introduction to state of the remote sensing in the ultraviolet to the short wave infrared spectral region. Many key players of atmospheric chemistry can be measured, which includes e.g. O3, NO2, SO2, HONO, HCHO, Halogen compounds, Glyoxal, CO, CO2 and CH4. Applications are discussed at the example of measurements of volcanic plumes, Arctic bromine explosion and Ozone depletion events, as well as observation of greenhouse gases from space.
Short Vita Dr. Leif Vogel
Dr. Vogel gained his PhD in 2011 at the Institute of Environmental Physics, Heidelberg, under the supervision of Prof. Platt, where he applied Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) to study trace gases in volcanic plumes and atmospheric halogen chemistry. In May 2013 he joined the Earth Observation Science Group at the Space Research Centre, University Leicester, UK, investigating greenhouse gases with satellite and ground based measurements in the NIR and SWIR spectral region. His main research interests are measurements of greenhouse gases and pollutants, radiative transfer and aerosols, algorithms for optical remote sensing and development of optical instruments for scientific and emissions monitoring purposes.

BC3 Seminar::Dr. Julio Diaz

 "Certezas e incertidumbres sobre el impacto de los extremos térmicos sobre la salud y de otros factores ambientales asociados a las altas temperaturas"

 Dr. Julio Díaz, Instituto de Salud Carlos III

Date:  30th of April, 2014
Time: 10:00
Venue: BC3 offices
Language: Spanish

Es evidente que desde que se produjo la ola de calor del año 2003 en Europa se ha producido un gran avance en el conocimiento de cómo los extremos térmicos afectan a la salud de la población, pero aún sigue habiendo discrepancias en el seno científico  que afectan a cuestiones tan básicas como la propia definición de ola de calor. Este mayor conocimiento ha traído en paralelo el planteamiento de cuestiones de gran importancia para el establecimiento de los Planes de Prevención como medida de adaptación ante estas temperaturas extremas: ¿Las temperaturas a las que se articulan los Planes de Prevención se mantienen constantes en el tiempo? ¿Cambian los impactos en salud como consecuencia de las variaciones sociodemográficas? Por otro lado, y para el caso del calor extremo, se está avanzando en el conocimiento de los impactos que otros factores ambientales, concomitantes con las altas temperaturas,  pueden tener sobre la salud de la población como es el caso de las intrusiones de polvo sahariano o la advección de material particulado como consecuencia de la combustión de  biomasa en los incendios forestales. Ante el cambio climático presente urge dar respuestas a estos interrogantes que se plantean y que van a ser claves a la hora de articular las medidas preventivas necesarias para minimizar los efectos que estos factores ambientales tienen sobre la salud de la población.

The molecular structure of ice grain boundaries and its role in the dynamics of polar ice sheets

Prof. Nobuhiko Azuma
Nagaoka University of Technology (Japan)


The polar ice sheets that cover Greenland and Antarctica play a crucial role in the global climate system. Discharge of ice into the ocean by massive creep flow affects global sea level and the ocean/atmospheric circulation patterns that govern the climate of Earth. During the past two decades, several deep ice drilling projects have been conducted in Greenland and Antarctica, in order to investigate the physical and chemical properties of polar ice. From these investigations it transpires that molecular processes occurring within polycrystalline ice and at its grain boundaries play a decisive role in the dynamics of polar ice sheets, because they may determine the dominant deformation mechanisms of ice in situ. The fact that the creep of ice sheets occurs at extreme conditions (stresses lower than 100 kPa, temperatures down to −50ºC, strain rates about 10−12 s−1, and total shear strains exceeding 1000%) makes it very difficult to reproduce and clarify the mechanisms of polar ice deformation in laboratory. For these reasons, we decided to investigate the mechanics of ice sheets by understanding the microscopic behavior of water molecules within ice grains and at their boundaries. In this seminar I will talk about the physical properties of the grain boundaries of polar ice and their role in the dynamics of polar ice sheets. To this aim I present our recent experimental results of ultra-slow ice-creep tests by using a modified phase modulation homodyne interferometer and the results of creep tests with very fine polycrystalline ice obtained by a new method that exploits ice polymorphism.


Speaker’s Short Vita (By S.H. Faria, BC3):

Prof. Nobuhiko Azuma is Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Executive Director/Vice-President of the Nagaoka University of Technology, Nagaoka, Japan. He earned his Dr.Eng. degree in 1986 from the Department of Applied Physics, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan, under the supervision of Prof. Akira Higashi. After that he worked as Research Assistant at the Department of Geological Sciences, State University of New York at Buffalo, USA, where he started his career as an ice core physicist in the group of Dr. Chester C. Langway, Jr., a pioneer of ice core research. Then, he returned to the Department of Applied Physics, Hokkaido University, Japan, to participate in the Japanese project of deep ice drilling at Dome Fuji, Antarctica. In the period 1988–1994 he visited Antarctica and Greenland several times performing tests and experiments for the deep drilling project and in 1994 he effectively started the deep drilling at Dome Fuji over the winter (deep drilling at Dome Fuji successfully finished in 2007, after retrieval of two deep ice cores amounting to more than 5 km of ice). In 1990 he was appointed Associate Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Nagaoka University of Technology, and became full professor in 2004. His research interests include ice core analyses, ice physics and ice drilling technology. He is regarded today as one of the leading names of polar ice physics worldwide.
