CALIPSO (Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation) Icon

CALIPSO (Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation)

The Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) satellite provides new insight into the role that clouds and atmospheric aerosols (airborne particles) play in regulating Earth's weather, climate, and air quality.

CALIPSO is a joint U.S. (NASA ) and French (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales/CNES ) satellite mission that has been in operation since 2006.
