Ozone, UV and Aerosol studies

Welcome to the webpages of the ozone, aerosol and UV research group at the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium (RMIB).

The research topics of the group are:

  • Ozone in the atmosphere
    • observation of the total column and the profile from the ground at Uccle
    • modelling of the troposphere
    • validation of satellite observations
  • UV radiation at the Earth's surface
    • measurement of the incoming radiation at an horizontal surface
    • prediction of the UV index
  • Aerosol in the boundary layer
    • retrieval of aerosol optical properties in the UV
    • validation of model results
    • monitoring of the atmospheric composition in Antarctica, Utsteinen, PES
