Campaigns - Berlin

The campaign in Berlin, Germany, is planned for the period summer 2021 – summer 2022.

During this field campaign, various ground-based remote-sensing and in-situ observations supply a city-specific database with a wide range of multi-scale meteorological data. In Berlin, the following existing and planned surface stations are considered for monitoring three different urban domains around the city center and extending into the rural surroundings:

  • Automatic LIDAR and Ceilometer (ALC)
  • Doppler Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR)
  • Scintillometers
  • Incoming radiation and visibility
  • Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET)
  • Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN)
  • Flux towers
  • Microwave profile
  • Radiosonde
  • Near-surface weather and air-quality stations

Towards compiling all required campaign information about Berlin, the meteorological observations are combined with existing atmospheric and geospatial datasets, including:

  • Model-based climate data
  • Digital Terrain Model (DTM)
  • Digital Surface Model (DSM)
  • Actual land covers / uses
  • Buildings footprint, age and height
  • Vegetation cover with information about seasonal change, heights and trees
  • Aerial imageries
