Hi All,

We are very much looking forward to another inspiring Fall AGU session on
Nanosatellite Atmospheric Sensors this December 2015, in San Francisco.

We hope you will consider submitting a paper to our session (abstracts are
due 5th August).

Just let us know if you have any questions about the session, and we look
forward to hearing about your work!

*Session ID#: *8870
Session Description:
Relatively frequent access to space for nanosatellites as secondary
payloads supports their use as platforms for compact atmospheric sounding
and imaging instruments. Scientists and engineers are developing
miniaturized sensors and sounders with state of the art measurement
capabilities with the goal of fielding constellations of nanosatellites to
improve geospatial, temporal, and spectral coverage of the Earth. Several
instruments, such as miniaturized millimeter-wave to submillimeter-wave
radiometers and GNSS radio occultation systems, are either under
development or have been recently deployed for technology demonstration
missions on CubeSats. This session will capture current status from
missions in development, results from recently deployed missions, and plans
for improving communication, data acquisition, processing, validation, and
the release of data products. This session will also include observing
system simulation experiments that demonstrate and quantify the science
benefit of nanosatellite constellation architectures for applications such
as severe weather forecasting, spectrometry, and ionospheric tomography.
