The ARISE project is a collaborative infrastructure Design Study project funded by the FP7 European Commission under the Capacities Programme. The ARISE project aims at establishing a unique atmospheric research and data platform in Europe, combining observations with theoretical and modelling studies, to elucidate the dynamics of the middle and upper atmosphere.
Infrasound IMS network and European infrasound network (atmospheric waves and inversions in the stratosphere)
LIDAR of the NDACC network (stratospheric wind and temperature)
Airglow observations of the NDMC network (mesospheric temperature and waves) and other stations.
The project will also use complementary stations including radars, ionospheric sounders, and satellite observations.
ARISE proposes to provide a new 3D image of atmospheric disturbances in the troposphere, stratosphere and mesosphere. It includes infrasonic disturbances from volcanoes, thunderstorms, cyclones, up to large scale atmospheric waves as tides and planetary waves with unprecedented spatiotemporal resolution.
3rd ARISE workshop in Grainau, Germany from 1st to 5th December 2014
