A-Train Satellites & Instruments

ATDD does not archiveall data from all A-Train instruments.  It would not be possible to shortcut from here to all data either.  Users are encouraged instead to navigate to the science teams home sites that we summarize below.  Frequently, science teams post news on algorithms developments that are very important but that Usersmay otherwise miss.  Further, the home sites below have obvious links to all relevant data publicly available.

 

Links to satellite missions (platforms), in the order they cross the Equator

(see simple visual with very approximate crossing times)

Aqua platform
Project home page The gateway to Aqua instruments:  AIRS, AMSR-E, CERES, and MODIS.  Note that AIRS has partner instruments on the same platform: AMSU-A and HSB.  Here Users will find the fundamentals of instruments characteristics.
MODIS Home page to the science team at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC)
AIRS Home page to the science team at the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL)
CERES Home page to the science team at LARC.
AMSR-E Home page to the science team at the NASA Marshal Space Flight Center (MSFC)

 

CloudSat
Project home page Overview of the mission and the instrument from the Colorado State University.
Data Processing Center The processing and distribution center at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, Colorado State University.  Valuable information on instrument status , two-line elements (TLE), and an important start-up reading - the Users Manual.

 

Calipso
Project home page Home to CALIPSO mission from LARC

Parasol
Project home page Home to PARASOL mission, from Center National d'Etudes Spatiales, France. 
PARASOL Description of the payload , summary of similarities and differences with POLDER.

 

Aura platform
Project home page The gateway to Aura instruments: HIRDLS, MLS, OMI and TES.
HIRDLS Home page to the science team at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR).
MLS Home page to the science team at JPL.

OMI
