NASA funds SAO instrument to track North American air pollution
Date:11/9/2012

The TEMPO team has extensive experience in measuring the components of air quality from low-Earth orbit. Chance is on the science teams of the Ozone Monitoring Instrument, now in orbit on NASA's Aura satellite, and two European air quality space sensors. The team includes partnerships with Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corp., in Boulder, CO; NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA; NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD; the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Research Triangle Park, NC; the National Center for Atmospheric Research, in Boulder, CO; and a number of U.S. universities and research organizations.

After being deployed on a geostationary satellite, TEMPO will observe Earth's atmosphere in ultraviolet and visible wavelengths of light to determine concentrations of many key atmospheric pollutants. From geostationary orbit, these observations can be made several times each day when North America is facing the sun instead of once per day, which is the case with current satellites orbiting a few hundred miles above the surface. Other space agencies are planning similar observations over Europe and Asia concurrent with the deployment of TEMPO, forming a global constellation of geostationary air-quality satellites.
