ARISE Project

The ARISE2 project is a collaborative infrastructure Design Study project (2015-2018) funded by the H2020 European Commission. It includes 24 institutes and universities, belonging to 10 European member states, 3 associated countries, 1 international organization and 3 African countries.


Infrasound IMS network and European infrasound network (atmospheric waves and inversions in the stratosphere).

LIDAR of the NDACC network (stratospheric wind and temperature).

The project will also use complementary stations including radars, wind radiometers and ionospheric sounders. It also use 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.


ARISE measurements will be used for improving stratosphere-resolving climate and weather forecasting models, for monitoring middle atmosphere climate, for civil applications related to monitoring of naturals hazards such as distant non instrumented volcanoes.

ARISE received the trophy “Stars of Europe”

ARISE received the trophy “Stars of Europe” (launching horizon2020 website) from the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, which recognizes teams of researchers for their European commitment in the coordination of European projects.


ARISE meetings

Thanks to the ARISE support by the French MRSEI ANR program, the following ARISE meetings were organized to ensure the project continuation:

  • January 24-25, 2019 : Paris (France), organized by Versailles University (UVSQ) and CEA
  • April 10, 2019 Vienna (Austria) during the EGU2019 meeting
  • June 5-6, 2019 Budapest (Hungaria) organized by CSFK
  • September 10-11 Paris (France) organized by Versailles University (UVSQ) and CEA
