A51S:
Atmospheric Sensing with UAVs and Nanosatellites: Next-Generation Platforms for Next-Generation Science I


Session ID#: 10648

Session Description:
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are exploding on to the atmospheric science stage as a sampling platform through which to address important scientific questions at the boundary between the local and regional spatial scales.  UAVs from super-light model aircraft to large remote-piloted airframes (such as the NASA Global Hawk) are being used increasingly for applications from atmospheric chemistry and dynamics, to air quality and emissions.  This session invites exciting work that demonstrates the emerging potential that UAVs can provide in the context of spatio-temporal linkage between ground-based, aircraft, and satellite sampling; and the Earth system modeling that such sampling facilitates.
