ANN: COMET: Satellite Monitoring of AtmosphericComposition
- Folks, I have received the following:
The COMET Program is pleased to announce the publication of the new module,
"Satellite Monitoring of Atmospheric Composition." Satellites have become
one of the most important tools for developing better understanding of the
composition of the atmosphere. 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.
*Please follow this link to the MetEd description page that provides
additional information and a link to begin the module: Satellite Monitoring

Sounds to be worth a look - perhaps you would like to report back for the
benefit of others.
