Description

The Earth Observations Research Program at GISS utilizes global measurements in order to understand the Earth system and interactions among its components as steps toward ultimately predicting Earth system behavior. To achieve this goal, cloud, aerosol, water vapor, trace gas and isotope data obtained during campaigns which are normally focused on obtaining short-term process-oriented measurements, are analyzed in the context of and complemented by longer-term satellite measurements. Ground-based and campaign data are also used to calibrate and validate the satellite-based measurements. Emphasis is placed on the analysis of multi- platform, multi-sensor radiance and polarization data sets and multi- sensor product development, accompanied by active utilization of these data and products in scientific research, modeling, synthesis, and diagnostic analysis to quantify change, characterize processes, and examine function within the Earth System over time with an emphasis on interannual and decadal scales. The program also includes development of techniques to infer global cloud properties from satellite radiance measurements as part of the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project.
