We welcome the CEDAR community to participate in the Optical Calibration and Data Analysis workshop to be held on Tuesday, June 20th at 10 AM - 12 PM. We especially welcome student involvement and have room for additional short presentations. One of the focuses of this year's workshop will be correcting for tropospheric scattering for different optical applications. In addition to reporting progress on calibration and analysis techniques, this workshop provides an opportunity to discuss challenges and gain feedback from other workshop participants. Please let us know if you would like to give a short presentation and/or if you have a topic or question you would like us to discuss during the session.

Accurate calibration is important for inter-comparison of observations, data/model comparisons, and long-term investigations. We invite discussion on a broad range of topics relating to passive optical and lidar observations and their analysis. Possible topics include absolute and relative intensity calibration, wavelength calibration, spatial scale determination, error analysis, correction for scattering within the lower atmosphere, isolation of atmospheric lines of interest, flat field techniques, spectral fitting approaches, and analysis of long term data sets. In addition to reporting progress on calibration and analysis techniques, this workshop provides an opportunity to discuss challenges and gain feedback from other workshop participants. We encourage hands-on demonstrations. In addition, we welcome modelers to discuss use of observations for model-data comparisons, and associated questions and challenges for model validation. We welcome and encourage presentations by students.
