PhD Position - The Performance Assessment of a Novel Satellite Instrument to Measure Atmospheric Dynamics
The Institute of Energy and Climate Research - Stratosphere (IEK-7) and related universities are building a series of Spatial Heterodyne Spectrometers (SHS) for remote sensing of the Earth atmosphere. The activities are part of the International Satellite Program in Research and Education (INSPIRE) and a European Union funded activity to study innovative technologies in space. Scheduled launch dates for these novel instruments are from 2023 to 2026. The scientific objectives of the measurements are addressing open science questions related to the dynamics of the Upper Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere. This region couples Earth`s lower atmosphere and nearer space and is facilitating both the influence of the atmosphere onto the ionosphere and hence our space assets as well as upper-atmosphere influences onto the lower atmosphere.
