Offer Description

In this research project you will work closely with instrument teams of two spectrometers on ESA's Envision mission: Venspec-H and Venspec-U. You will develop a sophisticated radiative transfer code (based on an existing Fortran-code) tailored to the optical properties of these two spectrometers that will include various scattering and absorption processes, polarisation of light for all orders of scattering, and the composition and structure of the Venus atmosphere. In close collaboration with both instrument teams and ESA specialists, you will use the code in combination with instrument models to inform the pre-flight calibration processes and to optimise the future data acquisition and analysis.


Requirements
