In a novel application of space-based atmospheric measurements, Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), in collaboration with GeoOptics Inc., is investigating the use of radio occultation measurements to improve severe weather forecasting. Pairing state-of-the-art, high-fidelity weather models with the rapidly evolving technology of miniaturized satellites in a scientific investigation is unique and new. The results of this study are not only intriguing from a science/discovery point of view, but have the distinct possibility of becoming a reality with the CICERO project in the next decade.
