ENSO in Lower Atmospheric Ozone
The response of tropospheric to lower stratospheric ozone to El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is derived using measurements from the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) and Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES).
TES First Measurements of PAN
Quantifying Peroxy Acetyl Nitrate (PAN) concentrations in pollution plumes is important for understanding the potential impact of the long-range transport of air pollution.
Measurements of Aerosols Above Clouds
The Aura project has developed a method to measure the optical depth of absorbing smoke and dust aerosols located above clouds using satellite observations.
Observations of Nabro eruption
retrievals on the Nabro's volcanic plume using hyperspectral UV measurements made by Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on June 13
Global Characteristics of the Double Tropopause
The global pattern of the double tropopause is revealed using the HIRDLS high vertical resolution profiles. Composition and structure near the tropopause are important for the Earth radiative balance and quantifying transport of ozone and other stratospheric species into the troposphere.
