NASA Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) Spring Science Team Meeting

California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California

Beckman Institute Auditorium

About The Meeting

The annual AIRS Science Team Meeting will be held Monday through Tuesday, April 17-18, 2017, at the Beckman Institute Auditorium on the campus of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California. The meeting will precede but not overlap the NASA A-Train Symposium which is held the same week in Pasadena. The format of the AIRS Science Team Meeting will be different from past meetings. It will consist of a few invited presentations and working group discussions focusing on this key question:

Which science questions are essential to address with the 40-year record of IR sounder observations that are currently available and planned for the future?

With this focus, the meeting will be more forward looking and will explicitly cover climate, weather, and composition science topics related to current and planned IR sounders.

Please register by Monday, April 10 using the link above.

We look forward to seeing you at the April meeting.

Meeting Agenda

Due to the revised format, all presentations are by invitation only. Please feel free to bring a couple of viewgraphs that explicitly address the main topic of the AIRS science team meeting. We should be able to include them as part of the discussion sessions.
