The Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering is hosting the NASA CLARREO science definition team meeting on North Campus from May 10 to 12.

CLARREO stands for Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory. The mission will monitor the pulse of the Earth to better understand climate change.

According to the NASA CLARREO website, the foundation for CLARREO is the ability to produce highly accurate and trusted climate records. Measurements derived from CLARREO will be used to detect climate trends and to test, validate, and improve climate prediction models.

In 2016, the CLARREO project received funding for a CLARREO Pathfinder mission to demonstrate essential measurement technologies required for the full CLARREO mission.

Associate Professor Xianglei Huang is a member of the CLARREO science definition team, and he will act as the host of this meeting.
