Awarded by European Commission
GEMS is funded by the European Commission under the EU Sixth Research Framework Programme, Contract SIP4-CT-2004-516099. We are very grateful to our project officer Dr. Peter Breger for his consistent help and enthusiasm in developing and launching the GEMS program. We also acknowledge the many agencies that provided observational data. Guido van der Werf (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) has kindly resampled the GFEDv2 inventory to 8-day time resolution. Louis Gonzalez (LOA USTL) kindly provided the MODIS image (online at http://loaamma.univ-lillel.fr/ modissurvey; http://loaamma.univ-lillel.fr/AMMA). Dr. Anthony Hollingsworth sadly passed away on 29 June 2007. He was the initiator and coordinator of the GEMS project and is greatly missed as a person and for his significant contributions to the atmospheric sciences.
