Dear user, changes will soon be made to Orfeo. We will undertake the migration to a new version, another environment (and therefore a new URL: https://orfeo.belnet.be/) and another provider. Belnet will take over the management of Orfeo in the future. For you, this means that no changes, modifications or uploads can be made to the database Orfeo from the 1st of December 2021 to the 10th of December 2021. The database remains available for consultation. From the 10th of December 2021 onwards, you can reach Orfeo via the new url https://orfeo.belenet.be/. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

dc.descriptionSince the nineties, atmospheric measurement systems have been deployed at Reunion Island, mainly for monitoring the atmospheric composition in the framework of NDSC/NDACC (Network for the Detection of Stratospheric Change/Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change). The location of Reunion Island presents a great interest because there are very few multi-instrumented stations in the tropics and particularly in the southern hemisphere. In 2012, a new observatory was commissioned in Maïdo at 2200 m above sea level: it hosts various instruments for atmospheric measurements, including lidar systems, spectro-radiometers and in situ gas and aerosol measurements. This new high-altitude Maïdo station provides an opportunity: 1. to improve the performance of the optical instruments above the marine boundary layer, and to open new perspectives on upper troposphere and lower stratosphere studies; 2. to develop in situ measurements of the atmospheric composition for climate change surveys, in a reference site in the tropical/subtropical region of the southern hemisphere; 3. to offer trans-national access to host experiments or measurement campaigns for focused process studies.
