PINE INP monitoring at the Kosetice National Atmospheric Observatory, CZ

End of April 2021, the mobile cloud expansion experiment PINE started a two months period for continuous measurements of ice-nucleating particles (INPs) at the Košetice National Atmospheric Observatory in the Czech Republic.

Within ACTRIS, IMK-AAF started to collaborate with the Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals of the CAS, Department of Aerosols Chemistry and Physics in Prague, which uses the National Atmospheric Observatory in Košetice for long-term atmospheric measurements. Košetice represents a unique rural background site in central Europe to study the sources and the variability of INPs. During 2 months measurement period, PINE-04-02 will provide continuous INP data in the temperature range between about -15°C and -30°C with a time resolution of 5min.
