Air-Sea Interaction under Stormy and Hurricane Conditions: Physical Models and Applications to Remote Sensing

FP7 Call Reference:FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IRSES International Research Staff Exchange Scheme Grant Agreement:  No PIRCES-GA-2013-612610

Project Acronym: ASIST

The focus of the Exchange Programme Air-Sea Interaction under Stormy and Hurricane Conditions: Physical Models and Applications to Remote Sensing (ASIST) is to develop the scientific basis for new microwave technologies capable of monitoring very strong (exceeding 25 m/s) winds over the sea and create new models of air-sea interaction valid for wide range of weather conditions (up to hurricanes). ASIST will lay foundations for significant advances in the meteo- and climate modeling.

The objectives of this project are threefold:
(1) to strengthen research partnerships through staff exchanges, networking and training of young scientists between 3 European research organizations from the United Kingdom, France and Germany, and 1 organization from Russia,
(2) to address the key scientific issues related to the development of novel and practical satellite based microwave technologies capable of monitoring very strong winds over the sea, and to the modeling air/sea interaction under stormy and hurricane conditions, and
(3) to develop the basis for long-term, sustainable research collaborations in this field.
