Cover Story (view full-size image): ESA’s EarthCARE (Earth Cloud, Aerosol, and Radiation Explorer) satellite will use ATLID (ATmospheric LIDar), a cloud profiling radar, broadband radiometer, and multispectral imager, to probe the atmosphere and provide synchronous, collocated data from atmospheric profiles. The mission aims to improve understanding of cloud–aerosol–radiation interactions and Earth radiative balance, facilitating better reliability of climate and numerical weather prediction models. ATLID will emit short duration, ultraviolet laser pulses which are backscattered by the atmosphere and collected by the receiver, then optically filtered to separate and measure Mie and Rayleigh scattered signals. Results from ATLID performance characterization, plus in-orbit flight predictions, are presented. View this paper
