SPIE2014[Update 24.10. Robert Banks was awarded by the SPIE review committee for the best student paper presented at the symposium. Congratulations!] During the last week of September Robert Banks attended SPIE Remote Sensing 2014 at the Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre. He presented a proceedings paper, “Retrieval of boundary layer height from lidar using extended Kalman filter approach, classic
methods, and backtrajectory cluster analysis,” in the Remote Sensing of Clouds and Atmosphere conference.

Main conclusions of the work show the advantages of an adaptive approach to estimate boundary layer height from lidar under different synoptic atmosphere conditions. The talk was well received with several comments and feedback gained from attendees. Other interesting sessions included the Sensors, Systems, and Next-Generation Satellites, and Lidar Technologies, Techniques, and Measurements for Atmospheric Remote Sensing. Overall, the meeting was a way to share new scientific results with peers from several diverse communities in the remote sensing field.
