  • Description:
    "The scientific communities studying atmospheric chemistry and its effects on air quality and climate change extensively use trace gas retrievals from thermal infrared (TIR) satellite observations. These products have been provided by NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) instruments, such as the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES), the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS), and the Measurements of Pollution In The Troposphere (MOPITT) instruments, as well as by the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) aboard the EUMETSAT MetOp satellites. However, all of the EOS TIR sounders are currently well past their expected design lifetimes, and NASA does not have current plans to replace these instruments. This places critical data products at risk. The loss of these products would substantially harm key scientific studies focused on air quality, climate change, and Earth system processes. There is, however, a solution. The Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) instrument, a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer currently flying aboard the joint NOAA, NASA and DOD Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi-NPP) satellite, has the potential to continue many of these trace gas data records. As CrIS will also be flown aboard the upcoming NOAA Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) satellites, it could continue to produce TIR trace gas retrievals throughout the coming decade and beyond. The CrIS Atmospheric Chemistry Data Users Workshop, held at NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, MD, was designed to ensure that CrIS could reach its full potential as an atmospheric composition instrument"--Page 3.
