Satellite observations: which information on tropospheric processes?
Jun. 08, 2010, 15:00
KIT, Campus Nord, Gebäude 435, Raum 2.05
The troposphere is the layer of the atmosphere where the human beings live. Many questions arise about the impact of human activities but also of natural activities on the equilibrium of the troposphere. Surface, airborne or balloon measurements provide a first approach to answer these questions. However, their coverage in space and time and their representativeness at larger scales is often insufficient in order to give a complete picture of the different processes implied in the tropospheric chemistry and transport. Satellite observations are promising means for the observation of Earth’s atmosphere. Satellites provide observations with a global coverage, with a good temporal repetitivity, and they also provide the possibility to probe the atmosphere over time periods of several years. In this talk we will explore the potential of satellites to provide useful information on the different tropospheric processes through examples of different satellite observations (limb, nadir).
