Ir. Arnoud Apituley is senior scientist at KNMI. He has over fifteen years of research experience in LIDAR for applications including tropospheric ozone, clouds, aerosols and water vapour. His main interest is in integrating in-situ and ground based and space borne remote sensing techniques, for the study of air quality and climate change at the Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Research (CESAR). He contributed to the experimental campaigns for air quality and climate related effects of aerosols and clouds and to several satellite validation studies (GOME, Envisat, LITE, CALIPSO). He is member of the AMS Committee on Laser Atmospheric Studies (CLAS), member of the executive board of CESAR and member of the Council of EARLINET.
