Aerosols And Clouds: Projects

The Airborne Multiangle SpectroPolarimetric Imager (AirMSPI) instrument flies aboard NASA's ER-2 high altitude aircraft.
The Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) is a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the US Air Force.
Although it failed at launch, the Glory Science Team was tasked to pursue its research goals with any form of data that approximates what its two instruments, the Aerosol Polarimetric Sensor (APS) and Total Irradiance Monitor (TIM), would have collected.
The Intercomparison of 3D Radiation Codes (I3RC) is an ongoing grassroots project in the international atmospheric 3D radiative transfer community focused on creating benchmarks for and verifying their computational models.
JIFRESSE is a scientific collaboration between UCLA and JPL to improve understanding and to develop future projections about global climate change.
MAIA represents the first time NASA has partnered with epidemiologists and health organizations to use space-based data to study human health and improve lives.
The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument provides a unique opportunity for studying the environment and climate of Earth through the acquisition of global multiangle imagery on the daylit side of Earth.
With its sweeping 2,330-km-wide viewing swath, MODIS sees every point on our world every 1-2 days in 36 discrete spectral bands.
OCO-2 - Orbiting Carbon Observatory
The Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) is a mission designed to make precise, time-dependent global measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO-2) from an Earth orbiting satellite.
PACE's advanced technologies will provide unprecedented insight into Earth's ocean and atmosphere, which impact our everyday lives by regulating climate and making our planet habitable.
