Soon the European space agency ESA will launch its new earth observation satellite called Aeolus. Using cutting edge Laser technology Aeolus will provide near real time observations of wind profiles across the globe. These will improve the accuracy of numerical weather prediction and climate modelling and advance our understanding of global atmospheric dynamics for example in the tropics.
Aeolus will fly in a sun-synchronous polar orbit and send its data to the ESA ground station in Svalbard. The satellite will be launched with a Vega launcher from Kourou.
