A040:
Earth System Change from Space: From EOS to Suomi NPP





Session ID#: 26133

Session Description:
The Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite provides the measurement capability to extend many high-quality time series data records that were initiated by earlier NASA Earth Observing System’s (EOS) satellites. Through the development of continuity-specific algorithms that account for instrument differences, S-NPP observations will allow scientists to extend a continuous record of satellite data of sufficient quality to detect and quantify global environmental changes.
