NASA-MEST Technical Group for Geostationary Atmospheric Composition Measurements
August 13, 2009 Meeting

Please Click Here for a listing of presentations associated with this meeting.

Under the auspices of the MEST-NASA Bilateral for Cooperation in Civil Space and Aeronautics Activities, we propose to establish a Technical Group on Atmospheric Composition Measurements From Geostationary Satellites. The purpose of this working group is to identify mutually beneficial objectives that could be achieved over the next 3 years. The scope will include science, instrumentation, algorithms, calibration/validation, options for launch, societal benefit analysis, and data policies. Recommendations will be provided to the Earth Science co-chairs of the MEST-NASA Bilateral agreement for consideration of implementation.

NASA is hosting the initial meeting of this Technical Group on August 13 at the NASA Headquarters building, 300 E Street SW, Washington, DC. The meeting will include brief overview presentations of the MP-GEO and GEO-CAPE missions; informal discussion of current capabilities; and open roundtable discussion to identify opportunities and begin developing recommendations.
