We are looking for a student to develop a server with webinterface for near real-time map visualization of mobileDOAS measurements of trace gas concentrations such as NO2. This could be done in the framework of a thesis or internship. The BIRA-IASB Aeromobil is a mobile remote sensing instrument, developed to measure trace gas concentrations which are strongly linked to air quality/pollution.
Currently the collected measurements are mapped in a post-processing step. The webinterface or viewer would be a big asset during measurement campaigns in order to detect hotspots in near real-time and would additionally be used for communication purposes, e.g. demonstration during open days.
- Bachelor or Master study – ICT option
- A general interest in atmospheric chemistry/physics, air quality and/or geoscience is an asset-Also a good understanding of English or French + Dutch is an asset
- The student can choose the starting date of his internship
- The duration should be a minimum of 1.5 months but can be extended to 3 months or even longer in the framework of a thesis
An office can be foreseen at BIRA-IASB, but the development can in principle be done from any location once a sample data set is provided.
