On behalf of the International Coordination-group for Laser Atmospheric Studies (ICLAS) and the 29th International Laser Radar Conference (ILRC) Organizing Committee, it is our privilege to invite you to the 29th ILRC, 24-28 June, 2019, in Hefei, Anhui Province, China! We look forward to welcoming our friends and colleagues from all around the world.
After 50 years, for the first time, the 29th ILRC comes to China! ILRC is held biennially under the oversight of the ICLAS, of the International Radiation Commission (IRC). The 29th ILRC will be co-hosted by six institutes/universities in China and supported by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Hefei municipal government. It is also persistently supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the European Space Agency (ESA), and many international/national partners and enterprises.
During the 29th ILRC, the new lidar technologies and techniques for profiling the aerosol and clouds, trace gases, water vapor, temperature, turbulence and 3D-wind will be explored. The application of lidar networking and space-borne lidars will be investigated. Emphasis will be given to weather forecasting, environmental and climate change investigations combined with multiple instruments and platforms. The lidar technologies extended to ocean, land surface and biological applications are also encouraged.
