Atmospheric Remote Sensing

The Atmospheric Remote Sensing research program uses land, ship, and aircraft-based optical systems to study processes of importance to air quality, climate, aviation, weather forecasting, wind energy, and marine ecosystems. Research capabilities and interests include the development and deployment of state-of-the art lidar and spectroscopic instrumentation, and the interpretation of data obtained with these systems.
