We use measurements from a variety of satellite instruments to understand processes affecting global atmospheric composition. In many cases, this effort involves developing retrieval algorithms to infer atmospheric composition from observed spectra. The major instruments that we use and current applications are listed below.
MAIA: composition of fine particulate matter (PM2.5)
PHEOS (PCW/PHEMOS): instrument design and planning
Partnership with NASA, EP, NOAA, and Sonoma Tech for Near Real Time PM2.5 Estimates:
