Paper Abstract

The Earth Explorer Earth Radiation Mission proposed by the scientific community for the ESA Earth Explorer line of missions will provide for the first time a multi-year set of cloud profiling and aerosols observations to progress in understanding the transport of energy and water between the Earth's surface and the top of the atmosphere. A backscatter lidar and a cloud profiling radar will be used separately, in complement and synergy to provide these profiles that will be extended across track by a visible-IR cloud imager and a two-channel broadband radiometer, from a satellite at around 400 km altitude. The mission is unique for the combination and capability of its sensors and for its utilization.
