Climate change, trace gases, and satellites - An interview with Chris Barnet

June 8, 2009

Trace gases in Earth's atmosphere are the driver of climate change, says Chris Barnet of NOAA-NESDIS. In this interview, Chris talks about the need to measure these gases, find their sources and sinks, and how satellite data (specifically data from AIRS, the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder on a NASA satellite known as "Aqua") is critical in our ability to do just that.
