GERB team Organisation RMIB

This page aims to inform you about who is responsible of which part of the GERB / CM SAF / EarthCARE / C3S projects at the RMIB. If you need a contact, you can email or phone the concerned person. In case of email, it is worth to put our collective email address (gerb[at]meteo[dot]be or remote_sensing[at]meteo[dot]be) in CC.

:!: Every RMIB GERB team member can be reached at FirstName [dot] LastName [at] meteo [dot] be.
