PhD: Developing improved methods for Air Quality measurements from space
Delft University of Technology:
faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences
The PhD candidate will exploit the data from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on the NASA EOS Aura satellite. He/she will develop innovative retrieval methods that address the limitation of current OMI products and contribute to new operational products. These retrieval methods will first be tested in a retrieval simulation environment, subsequently applied to real satellite data sets and finally validated with independent, ground-based observations. With the improved data products, complemented by ground-based and model data, the interplay between trace gases, aerosols and clouds will be studied. An example of the limitations of the current product is the underestimation of tropospheric NO2 columns in the presence of high aerosol loadings. Combining the information from different satellite instruments is expected to lead to significant improvements.
The ideal candidate has a Master degree in (astro)physics, atmospheric chemistry, meteorology, remote sensing or a closely related discipline. You preferably have experience with remote sensing and radiative transfer modelling. Good programming skills in Python, C++, C or FORTRAN are required. You must be fluent in English and preferably also in Dutch.
