The ARISE design study project is designed to study the dynamics of the atmosphere from the ground to the mesosphere, through the use of complementary technologies and observation networks, such as the infrasound network of the International Monitoring System (IMS) of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBO) and the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDAAC) which uses the lidar (Light Detection And Ranging) technology. The networks are completed by ARISE’s European infrasound stations, complementary radar systems, observatories and satellites to provide a more comprehensive and coherent description of the atmospheric dynamics and disturbances. The observations cover areas extending over Europe and outlying regions, including polar and equatorial regions submitted to very different climatic regimes. The altitude range covers the middle and upper atmosphere where routine, high resolution observations are rare. Combining middle-atmospheric sounding techniques helps to better describe the interaction between atmospheric layers in poorly sampled altitude ranges and better captures the influence of large scale disturbances such as planetary and gravity waves over the general circulation. The objective of the ARISE data portal is to provide a new set of complementary data and advanced products which are easy-to-use by a broad scientific community. This Data Portal is a demonstrator developed in the framework of the ARISE2 design study.
