21 August 2009 Remote sensing capabilities of the Airborne Compact Atmospheric Mapper
Author Affiliations +
The Airborne Compact Atmospheric Mapper (ACAM) was designed and built at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) as part of an effort to provide cost-effective remote sensing observations of tropospheric and boundary layer pollutants and visible imagery for cloud and surface information. ACAM has participated in three campaigns to date aboard NASA's Earth Science Project Office (ESPO) WB-57 aircraft. This paper provides an overview of the instrument design and summarizes its ability to determine the minimal measurable slant-column concentration of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) as well as exploring the calibration stability of commercially available miniature spectrometers.
