Special Features

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.

Ozone Watch

View the latest status of the ozone layer over the Antarctic, with a focus on the ozone hole.

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.
