NASA to Discuss Unanticipated Capability of EMIT Instrument (Media Telecon)

A NASA instrument installed on the International Space Station this summer has demonstrated an unanticipated capability to help better understand the impacts of climate change. EMIT, the Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation, was built by scientists to understand how dust affects the climate. The instrument’s primary mission is to map the prevalence of key minerals in our planet’s deserts, but recently, it demonstrated another crucial capability. In this audio teleconference, experts will discuss the latest findings. Speakers: Karen St. Germain, Earth Science Division director at NASA Headquarters in Washington Robert Green, EMIT principal investigator, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Southern California Andrew Thorpe, research technologist, JPL Kirt Costello, chief scientist, NASA’s International Space Station Program For more information about EMIT, visit: https://earth.jpl.nasa.gov/emit/
