4 Dr.Arnolds Ubelis Project summary The key objective of the “NOCTURNAL ATMOSPHERE” project is to carry out coordinated transfer of knowledge between participating teams in the EU, in the Ukraine and Russia with the aim of restoring and strengthening scientific partnership to enhance the level of scientific excellence of participating early stage and experienced researchers. The transfer of knowledge and achievement of intellectual “critical mass” will occur through performing theoretical exercises and laboratory research in the important and growing field of secondary photochemical reactions in the Earth’s nocturnal atmosphere and in development breakthroughs of active remote sensing technologies for night-time cartography of the troposphere and stratosphere. The challenge is to create a unique instrument for ranging sensors on satellite, crossing night-time sky segment, with a combined laser&white light beam from the Earth. The consortia members have relevant theoretical and experimental research experience and specific technical skills to achieve progress in research on the nocturnal atmosphere. The joint effort will work synergistically to amplify their knowledge and skills. The secondments will include both a team doing research work on specific work packages and a transfer of knowledge component consisting of seminars, workshops and a summer school which will ensure the effective dissemination of results and foster interactions amongst the young researchers and PhD students. They will be mentored by and intensively exposed to a culture of international collaborative research.
