Atmospheric Research and Teaching Observatory

Atmospheric Research and Teaching Observatory

The Atmospheric Research and Teaching Observatory (ATRO) is located on the top of the EB building on the north campus of Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), Suzhou, China (31.27472 °N, 120.7375 °E). Its aim is to continuously record atmospheric observation data, such as the air temperature, humidity, pressure, and concentration of aerosol particles. With the help of these data, we hope to gain insights into how the urban surface interacts with the overlying atmosphere and the ground below.

We are open for internal and external collaborated research and teaching activities at ARTO, including air sampling, short-term or long-term atmospheric continuous observation, and other on-site experiments.

If you are interested in ARTO, please contact Dr  Peng Zhao for further information.
