For your Thanksgiving viewing, COMET has released a new module, “Satellite Monitoring of Atmospheric Composition”.
Developed in partnership with EUMETSAT, this 1-hour module provides an overview of the main satellite applications in this area, which include monitoring stratospheric ozone and ozone depletion, pollution (including long distance transport), volcanic ash and SO2, and chemicals important in assessing climate change. In addition, the module discusses the operational uses of satellites in air quality forecasting. A brief history of atmospheric composition satellite missions is provided, along with a look at plans for future research and operational missions.
The intended audience for Satellite Monitoring of Atmospheric Composition is anyone with an interest in the uses of atmospheric composition satellite products or who wants an introduction to the European and U.S. satellite missions that deal with atmospheric composition products.
