DISCOVER-AQ Mission

A challenge for Earth-observing satellites measuring air quality is to distinguish between pollution high in the atmosphere and that near the surface where people live and breathe. NASA began a multi-year airborne field campaign in 2011 to tackle this challenge.

The project is called DISCOVER-AQ, which stands for Deriving Information on Surface conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality.” NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., leads NASA's contribuations to the mission.
