The group comprises several well-trained teams of experts in chemical physics and/or instrumentation that apply their skills to the latest needs of NASA missions. Whether it is daily observations, field campaigns, or state-of-the-art laboratory research, the Laboratory Studies and Atmospheric Observations group provides high quality metrics that NASA missions rely on for calibration, validation and new science.
What are the magnitudes and uncertainties of spectral parameters needed to relate remotely sensed measurements to atmospheric composition?
What field measurements will validate and extend the impact of satellite mission data?
What spectroscopic instrumentation will be used in future composition measurements? How will it be built, tested and proven?
Which photochemical data and reaction rates are reliable for understanding atmospheric processes?
