MISR AAP Project Focuses on Canadian Wildfire Properties

On July 17–20, 2020, multiple wildfires were burning across Ontario, Canada. Laboratory scientists on the Multi-Angle Imaging Spectro-radiometer (MISR) Active Aerosol Plume-Height (AAP) Project used remote sensing techniques to map the smoke plume and aerosol transport from these fires.

The Climate and Radiation Laboratory seeks a better understanding of Earth's climate on all time scales, from daily, seasonal, and interannual variability through changes on geologic time scales. Our research focuses on integrated studies of atmospheric measurements from satellites, aircraft and in-situ platforms, numerical modeling, and climate analysis.

We investigate atmospheric radiation, both as a driver for climate change and as a tool for the remote sensing of Earth's atmosphere and surface. The Laboratory research program strives to better understand how our planet reached its present state, and how it may respond to future drivers of change, both natural and anthropogenic.
