The TEMPO Science Team converged on Madison, Wisconsin this week for the annual Science Team Meeting. TEMPO is a geostationary satellite instrument dedicated to monitoring tropospheric pollution over North America from space every hour of the day. For updates on the TEMPO instrument, check out the website here. We anticipate to hear an announcement of a host for TEMPO this summer, and at that point should have an idea of when to expect lift-off!
This year, Jeff was presenting his work on establishing an intra-urban network of ground-based remote sensing instruments in Boston for monitoring tropospheric trace gas column variability at the neighborhood-level. This work will help us link the latest satellite observations of atmospheric composition to air quality at the surface.
