Autumn School: Atmospheric Measurements Using Miniaturised Sensors and Drones (30 October – 3 November 2023)

The Center of Excellence for Climate and Atmosphere Research (CARE-C) of the Cyprus Institute is organizing the Autumn School on “Atmospheric measurements using miniaturised sensors and drones” on 30 Oct–3 Nov, 2023. The course will be held at the Cyprus Institute campus in Nicosia, Cyprus.

About the course

The focus of the course is both practical and theoretical approaches in miniaturised sensors and drone technologies. Short lectures on relevant topics (atmospheric sciences, drones, sensors) will be given during the first day. On the second day, working groups will have a chance to participate in test flights and collect data that will be further analysed and reported during the rest of the course. The course will conclude with a written report that will be returned after the course. The aim of the course is to teach the students the whole cycle of scientific field work, from how to design measurements, collect data, analyse data to publishing a report of the experimental work and data.

For more details you can consult the course schedule.

Who is it for

This intensive course is suitable for both M.Sc. and Ph.D. students in atmospheric and Earth system sciences. The course workload, including the final report, is equivalent to 3 ECTS (75h).

Course fees

There are no registration fees for participation in this course.  Complimentary lunch will be provided to autumn school students during the course.  However, students are expected to organize and cover their own travel and accommodation, and any other expenses relating to their stay in Nicosia.
