The Met Office plans to use space lidar datasets from CALIPSO, CATS, Aeolus and EarthCARE operationally in near real time (NRT), for the detection of aerosols. The first step is the development of NRT imagery for nowcasting of volcanic events, air quality, and mineral dust episodes. Model verification and possibly assimilation will be explored. Assimilation trials of Aeolus winds are also planned. Here we will present our first in-house imagery and our operational requirements.
