AIM-North!

I’m very excited to be an international partner on a new Canadian Satellite project called AIM-North.  This project uses two satellites an innovative “highly elliptic” orbit to achieve multiple measurement times per day above Canada and the Arctic in general.  The figure below shows the fields of regard for the satellites highlighting excellent coverage of Arctic landmasses.  The satellites would carry UV-Visible and Infrared spectrometers to image pollutants, aerosols, and greenhouse gas exchange over the Boreal forest.  This project would revolutionize our understanding of the North.
