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.
