The mission of the recruited researcher will be to contribute to the exploitation of space lidar missions for the study of aerosols and clouds, based on climate modeling. The CALIPSO space mission has been in orbit since 2006, the EarthCare space mission will be launched in 2022 and the ACCP space mission will be launched by the end of this decade.


- Contribution to the development of lidar simulators for climate models; in particular the aerosol component of the simulator for the LMDZ model.
- Analysis of simulation results for the preparation of future lidar satellite missions (EarthCare and ACCP).
- Comparison of the simulations with the observations collected by the CALIPSO space lidar to evaluate the performance of the model; in particular the aerosol component.

Work Context

The work will be carried out within the Dynamic Meteorology Laboratory. The LMD regroups 150 people and is attached to the Pierre-Simon Laplace Institute. The IPSL is a Research Federation of the CNRS which brings together 9 laboratories in the Paris region involved in research on climate change. Its own staff is about 40 engineers, technicians and administrative staff, and all the laboratories have about 1400 employees. The group is part of the DPAO team, and gathers researchers and engineers working on lidar satellite observations.
