Projects

MOPITT

Measurements Of Pollution In The Troposphere (MOPITT) is a space instrument for measuring carbon monoxide in the atmosphere.  It was launched on NASA’s Terra satellite in December 1999.

SCISAT/MAESTRO

SCISAT is a Canadian Satellite to measure ozone and related compounds with emphasis on the Arctic.  It was launched in 2003.  My main responsibility is for the MAESTRO instrument.

CANDAC/PEARL

The Canadian Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Change (CANDAC) operates the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory (PEARL) at Eureka Nunavut (80N, 86W)

MANTRA

The Middle Atmosphere Nitrogen Trends Assessment (MANTRA) is a balloon program to measure stratospheric trace constituents.

MAQ

Measurements of Air Quality (MAQ) is a Canadian satellite project to measure tropospheric pollution on a global basis with a variety of instruments

MAPLE

Measuring Air Pollution Levels in the Environment (MAPLE) is a follow-on to the MOPITT project seeking to refine and expand our measurements of carbon monoxide

MC3M

Mars Canadian Composition and Climate Mission (MC3M) is a mission concept to measure atmospheric composition on Mars in the same way as SCISAT and MOPITT have done it on Earth.

SWIFT/Chinook

Stratospheric Wind Interferometer for Transport Studies (SWIFT) is a Canadian instrument to measure winds in the middle atmosphere.  It will fly on the Canadian Chinook satellite.
