Aura Validation Experiment (Costa Rica) (CR-AVE)


The Costa Rica Aura Validation Experiment (CR-AVE) is a mission designed to explore the tropical upper troposphere and lower stratosphere (UTLS) and to provide information for comparison to satellite observations. The tropical region between 30 N and 30 S comprises half of the Earth’s surface, yet is relatively unsampled in comparison to the mid-latitude of the Northern Hemisphere.
