Resource Library

Through revolutionary work we've earned a global reputation for the quality of our wide-ranging, in-depth studies of the Earth, its oceans, its atmosphere and the extraterrestrial forces that exert influence on our planet every day.

The AER Resource Library highlights research conducted by AER scientists – often in collaboration with colleagues in top universities and research organizations throughout the world. AER contributors are marked in bold.

Assimilation of Hyperspectral Infrared Observations with Optimal Spectral Sampling

  Current data assimilation (DA) systems use only a small fraction of the thousands of channels from hyperspectral infrared sounding instruments, including IASI, AIRS, and CrIS. An alternative that retains nearly the full hyperspectral information content at greatly reduced computation cost, while filtering instrument noise, is to assimilate the optimal spectral sampling (OSS) node radiances. T...

Severe Weather Study Shows Potential of GNSS-RO

Type: Report In a novel application of space-based atmospheric measurements, Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) of Lexington, Massachusetts, in collaboration with GeoOptics of Pasadena, CA, is investigating the use of radio occultation (RO) measurements to improve severe weather forecasting.  Pairing state-of-the-art, high-fidelity weather models with the rapidly evolving technology o...
