Second International Scintillometer Workshop
The second international Scintillometer Workshop will be held on the 8th of November 2007 at the Wageningen International Conference Centre (WICC) in Wageningen, the Netherlands.
Organized by: Meteorology and Air Quality Group of Wageningen University, the Netherlands and the German Weather Service (DWD), Lindenberg, Germany.
The scope of the workshop encompasses scintillometer topics that range from instrument-development to theoretical issues to the application of scintillometry as a tool to obtain area-averaged turbulence statistics and subsequent turbulent fluxes of heat, water vapour and momentum in the atmospheric surface layer.
Two guest speakers have been invited: Rod Frehlich and Sylvain Cheinet.
The workshop is organized in honour of Henk de Bruin, who retired earlier this year. With this event Henk will take formal leave from the international scintillometer community. He will give an overview of the scintillometer research conducted by the Wageningen group over the last 15 years.
