Paper Abstract

ESA is planning to perform the Atmospheric Dynamic Mission from the International Space Station. The Space Station is a multi purpose platform, many experiments will be carried out during the same time. Therefore, the Doppler lidar instrument ALADIN, the main sensor to get wind information in the troposphere is not on an ideal platform. There is no full coverage and there is limited observation time caused by other orientation of the space station. To answer the question of the usefulness of a Doppler lidar on the space station the so-called targeted observation was mentioned. Is it possible to get result for the weather forecast improvement if one focuses the observation in sensitive areas of the globe. Both sensor specialists and numerical weather prediction scientists work together to answer this question in the Aladin Impact Study. First results will be presented.
