TROPOSAT

The Use and Usability of Satellite Data for Tropospheric Research

Project Description

Section 1

  1.      The Aims of TROPOSAT

To explore and encourage the use of satellite data to determine two- and three- dimensional distributions and time series of trace gases and other parameters in the troposphere and so facilitate future research and environmental monitoring on regional and global scales, in particular through:

In addition TROPOSAT will undertake other underpinning and derived activities such as the development of appropriate data assimilation techniques combining satellite measurements with modelling, and the specification of the requirements for future satellite instruments for tropospheric work.
