 Atmospheric Physics And Weather (329E): Projects

AIRS Icon AIRS
The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder, AIRS, is an instrument whose goal is to support climate research and improved weather forecasting.

CloudSat Icon CloudSat
CloudSat is an experimental satellite that uses radar to study clouds and precipitation from space. CloudSat flys in orbital formation as part of the A-Train constellation of satellites (Aqua, CloudSat, CALIPSO, PARASOL, and Aura).

GeoSTAR Icon GeoSTAR
The Geostationary Synthetic Thinned Aperture Radiometer (GeoSTAR) is a new concept for a microwave sounder, intended to be deployed on NOAA's next generation of geostationary weather satellites, the GOES-R series.

GRIP Icon GRIP
The Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) experiment was conducted to better understand storms and hurricanes.

HS3 Icon HS3
The Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) is a five-year mission specifically targeted to investigate the processes that underlie hurricane formation and intensity change in the Atlantic Ocean Basin.

JIFRESSE Icon JIFRESSE
JIFRESSE is a scientific collaboration between UCLA and JPL to improve understanding and to develop future projections about global climate change.

MEaSUREs
NASA's Earth Science Program is dedicated to advancing Earth remote sensing and pioneering the scientific use of satellite measurements to improve human understanding of our home planet.

NAMMA Icon NAMMA
The NASA African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (NAMMA) campaign is a field research investigation sponsored by the Science Mission Directorate of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

NEWS Icon NEWS
The NASA Energy and Water cycle Study project uses satellite observations to improve predictions of water-related processes in the Earth's climate system.

NPP Icon NPP
The National Polar-Orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) Preparatory Project (NPP) mission collects and distributes remotely-sensed land, ocean, and atmospheric data to the meteorological and global climate change communities.

SERVIR Icon SERVIR
SERVIR aims to advance and transition NASA capabilities towards critical regions around the world.

SMAP - Soil Moisture Active Passive Icon SMAP - Soil Moisture Active Passive
The Soil Moisture Active Passive Mission provides measurements of soil moisture and its freeze/thaw state as well as sea surface salinity.

TCSP Icon TCSP
The Tropical Cloud Systems and Processes (TCSP) mission is an Earth science field research investigation sponsored by the Science Mission Directorate of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

PREFIRE (Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment) Icon PREFIRE (Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment)
Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment (PREFIRE) will quantify the radiative processes effected by changing temperatures in the Arctic.
