AQUA (EOS-PM1) is an afternoon equator-crossing platform which includes a suite of sensors designed to study the diurnal properties of cloud and aerosol radiative fluxes, cloud formation, and precipitation (MIMR, AIRS/AMSU-A/MHS, and MODIS-N) in conjunction with a wind scatterometer planned for the Japanese ADEOS-II spacecraft. MIMR, MODIS-N, and AIRS will contribute to studies of sea-ice extent and heat exchange with the atmosphere. Data from the EOS-PM1 platform and the sensors on the TRMM spacecraft will combined to assess the utility and accuracy of precipitation measurements.
