CATS Earth remote sensing instrument to debut on space station
Description: The Cloud-Aerosol Transport System (CATS) will study the distribution of aerosols, the tiny particles that make up haze, dust, air pollutants, and smoke. This Earth remote sensing instrument is scheduled to launch to the space station in September 2014 as a demonstration project. Its sensors will help researchers determine for the first time what state-of-the-art, three-wavelength laser technology can do from space to measure aerosols in the Earth's atmosphere. [Source:]
