Dr. Dave Donovan has been employed by KNMI since 1998. He has an extensive background in lidar remote sensing of aerosol, trace gasses, and clouds. In recent years he has developed extensive expertise in the fields of atmospheric radiative transfer and multi-sensor cloud remote sensing. In particular, he was the first to develop a combined lidar radar cloud property retrieval approach that takes lidar multiple scattering into account and to apply it to large data sets. He has acted as project coordinator for two ESA sponsored studies in support of the joint European/Japanese Earth Clouds and Radiation Explorer (EarthCARE) mission proposal. Dr. Donovan is also a member of the Joint European/Japanese EarthCARE mission advisory group as well as member of the CLOUDSAT science team.
