Third NA3 Intercomparison Workshop for Mobility Size Spectrometers

From: 14 June 2009
To: 26 June 2009
Place: Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (IfT), Leizpig, Germany

The goal of the 3rd S/DMPS intercomparison workshop will be to solve existing deviations among the upgraded spectrometers during the workshop with respect to counting accuracy, sizing accuracy, shifting particle number distributions,and discrepancies between custom-made and IFT inversion algorithms.

The workshop will build on the results of the last 2008 workshop where most systems had been modified and harmonized according to EUSAAR standards, and it is planned to take place with a limited number of skilled participants.

All participants must be experienced with the operation of the mobility spectrometers, the data acquisition, and the inversion programme.

Workshop programme: The preliminary agenda is as follows:

June 12 Instruments must arrive at IFT
June 14 Arrival of participants
June 15 CPC calibration day I, spectrometer set-up
June 16 CPC calibration day II
June 17 Spectrometer calibration part I
June 18-22 Spectrometer calibration part II
June 21-24 Discussion and data sessions
June 25 Departure, packing of instruments
