Welcome to the 4th APOLO Conference

Advancement of POLarimetric Observations: instruments, calibration, and improved aerosol and cloud retrievals

SCOPE

The primary topic was remote sensing with light polarization, including, but not limited to:

  • Advances in the theory of polarimetric remote sensing

  • Scattering of light by terrestrial aerosols, clouds, oceans, and land surfaces

  • Polarimetric applications in astrophysics and planetary science

  • Improvement of polarimetric instrumentation quality and information content

  • Development of advanced retrieval algorithms and data processing

  • Upcoming and current satellite missions and field campaigns

  • Long-term calibration and validation

  • Climate modelling, elaborated in situ and ground-based validation observations
  • Models, In situ and Remote sensing of Aerosols (MIRA) Collaborations
  • EarthCARE

  • AOS (Atmosphere Observing System)

  • JAXA/GCOM-C

  • PACE mission

SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATIONS

The APOLO conferences aim to promote international collaboration and informal, but deep, scientific cooperation on polarimetric observations.

Collections of articles from APOLO-2017APOLO-2019 and APOLO-2022 have been published in the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer (JQSRT). We intend to continue this tradition for APOLO-2024.
