TReSS is a Transportable Remote Sensing Station for aerosols and clouds observations in the troposphere: optical and micro-physics properties, life cycle, temporal and spatial evolution, troposphere dynamics. It relies on a synergism of active and passive remote sensors observations at different wavelengths, field of view and angle of observations: a sun photometer, a web type camera, a Mini-Lidar, a IR radiometer and a pyranometer. Un sonic anemometer on a 10-m tall mast complete the instrumental set.
