Caption: ADM-Aeolus satellite and cyclone. Illustration of the European Space Agency (ESA) wind mission satellite ADM-Aeolus (Atmospheric Dynamics Mission Aeolus), in Earth orbit. At lower left is a cyclonic storm system moving over the UK. This satellite, due for launch in 2017, is intended to provide data on winds, aerosols (atmospheric particles) and clouds. It will have a single instrument, a Doppler wind lidar (laser-based sensor) called ALADIN. It will probe the lowermost 30 kilometres of the atmosphere, and will will be the first wind lidar in space. Data will be used to help improve weather forecasts, such as the prediction of mid-latitude cyclone systems.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
