Delivery of aerosol products for assimilation and environmental use

Objective

Atmospheric aerosols affect human health, continental and marine ecosystems, visibility, and the Earth's climate, requiring dedicated monitoring of their properties. DAEDALUS is a focused project to make an inventory of existing data relevant to aerosol monitoring, assess the users' needs at the European level interims of troposphere and stratospheric aerosol properties, evaluate the scientific, technical, and institutional efforts needed to meet the users' needs, match the available aerosol data products with the information needed by the group of users, and improve methodologies for making optimal use of satellite data and for assimilating aerosol data in transport models. DAEDALUS will provide the necessary impetus for designing long-term sustainable and fully operational European monitoring of aerosol properties at regional and global scales over sea and over land, as foreseen in GMES.
