Satellite Meteorology and Climatology Division Road Map

The Division's research capabilities are concentrated in the sciences associated with satellite remote sensing of the Earth's atmosphere, surface, and climate. Most of the Division's research and development falls into the following discipline areas: atmospheric variables – temperature, humidity, winds; land surface variables – vegetation, snow and ice cover; hydrological cycle variables - precipitation, clouds, water vapor; environmental hazards – aviation hazards, air quality, fires, heavy rainfall and flash floods, and drought: and climate variables – ozone, Earth radiation budget, aerosols, and greenhouse gases.
