AER Introduces the Algorithm Workbench at the 2015 NOAA Satellite Conference

Scott Zaccheo

I recently returned from the 2015 NOAA Satellite Conference, a widely attended international conference sponsored by NOAA's National Satellite and Information Service (NESDIS).  It was exciting to spend a full week interacting with an internationally diverse set of environmental satellite data users, scientists and algorithm/software developers, all interested in current and future NOAA programs and products.

AER Contributes to Landmark Study on Earth’s Greenhouse Effect

Eli Mlawer

Scientists who research thermal radiation in the Earth’s atmosphere are confident that we have a very detailed and accurate understanding of the nature of the greenhouse effect of carbon dioxide (CO2), including the impact of rising CO2 levels. 

Recently I participated in a study that provided the first direct observation at the surface of the Earth’s increased greenhouse effect due to rising CO2 levels. This represents an important milestone in the detection of the increased greenhouse effect due to fossil fuel emissions.

AER research team contributes to Harvard-led study on natural gas leaks in Boston region

Thomas Nehrkorn

Scientists from AER's greenhouse gas (GHG) research team participated in a Harvard-led study ("Methane emissions from natural gas infrastructure and use in the urban region of Boston, Massachusetts") just published  in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

AER authors 43 oral/poster presentations at AGU Fall Meeting & AMS Annual Meeting

Ron Isaacs

We look forward to seeing colleagues at both the AGU Fall Meeting and the AMS Annual Meeting and hope you'll take a few moments to stop by some of AER's technical presentations.

As always, scientists and software engineers from Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) are contributing significantly to the meetings, giving 43 oral and/or poster presentations over the course of these two scientific conferences. In all, 38 AER authors contributed to this research.
