Airborne profile observations of greenhouse gases as an element of an emission verification system

My PhD project is strongly connected to the CoMet airborne campaign, which conducted in 2018 and was focused on testing innovative remote-sensing, in-situ and modelling methods to constrain european sources of main greenhouse gases - carbon dioxide and methane.

My role in the campaign mainly relates to the modelling support. During the preparation phase, I am responsible for the biospheric CO2 flux forecast in the GHG forecast system, which provides information of winds and trace gas plume strength for the flight planning.

Currently my research focuses on using the in-situ measurement from the campaign to validate a IPDA Lidar CHARM-F. The atmospheric transport model STILT is used as an important tool to bridge the two data streams.
