Glory Promises New View of Perplexing Particles
Description: Airborne particles called aerosols can have a powerful impact on the climate. However, pinpointing the magnitude of the effect has proven challenging because of difficulties associated with measuring the particles on a global scale. The new satellite Glory aims to change this with an innovative aerosol-sensing instrument. By more accurately identifying a broad suite of aerosol types the instrument should help climatologists fill in key gaps in climate models. [Source: NASA News]
