AOS and Benefits of Lidar for Applications
 Thursday, 24-Feb-2022
 1:00-2:00 PM Eastern
The Atmosphere Observing System (AOS) will help provide transformative three-dimensional space-based and suborbital observations of essential collocated cloud, dynamic, precipitation and aerosol processes, leading to improved predictions of weather, air quality and climate for the benefit of society. AOS Lidar observations will, for the first time, capture diurnally variability in the vertical profile of aerosols as well as provide unprecedented accuracy in aerosol speciation. In this seminar, invited panelists will discuss their current uses of lidar for applications and the benefits of these instruments for societal decision-making activities.
Panel Speakers: Mike Pavolonis (NOAA/NESDIS STAR), Jean Paul Vernier (LaRC-NIA), and Angela Benedetti (ECMWF). Panelists' presentations will be followed by a discussion facilitated by the Applications Impact Team. All are welcome to participate and ask questions during the discussion portion of the seminar.
Please send any questions to Andrea Portier.
