Aura is dedicated to understanding the changing chemistry of our atmosphere.

Announcement


Dear EOS Aura Colleagues,

The next Aura Science Team meeting has been rescheduled to August 27-29, 2019 in Pasadena, California.

Meeting information, including on registration, hotel, and abstract submission, can be found here.

I look forward to seeing many of you in Pasadena!

Regards,
Bryan Duncan
(Aura Project Scientist)

Air quality, observations from space

Aura is a large contributer to this NASA web site which show how satellite data of air pollution may be used for health, air quality, and agricultural/food security applications.

Informing Policy Makers

Aura's data objectives have a strong relevance for national interests (i.e., operational uses by federal agencies), applied sciences, scientific research, and societal benefit.
