Partnership ETHER

Ether is a joint venture between CNES (Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales) and CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) - INSU (Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers) to promote research in atmospheric chemistry.

Ether supported the transition from the MOZAIC databank to the central MOZAIC-IAGOS database, and is now supporting the development of added-value products on the database.

Ether supports the development of other databases and provides datasets for the research community:

  • Databases: 
    • ECCAD (Emission data and ancillary data for emission calculations)
    • GEISA (Spectroscopic data base)
    • KINETIC (Chemical kinetic data base)
    • RAMCES (Atmospheric network for measurements of greenhouse compounds)
    • NDACC-France (Network for Detection of Atmospheric Composition Changes)
  • Datasets:
    • ODIN-SMR
    • IASI

Ether allows the use of some tools:

  • MIMOSA (Isentropic maps of potential vorticity from ECMWF analyses & forecasts)
  • REPROBUS (Chemistry Transport Model diagnoses for polar winters)
  • GIRAFE (Biomass burning plumes)
