ARISE Project

The second design study ARISE2 project, submitted in September 2014, has been accepted in January 2015. ARISE2 is a collaborative infrastructure Design Study project (2015-2018) funded by the H2020 European Commission. It includes now 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)

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.

Infrasonic disturbances, thunderstorms, cyclones,tides and planetary wave


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.
