CLARREO Pathfinder-on-ISS
International Space Station/Climate Absolute Radiance & Reflectivity Observatory Pathfinder

NASAPlanned202120221 year nominal mission. The goal of the Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory (CLARREO) mission is to improve our understanding of climate change by providing high accuracy measurements of the change in key climate variables over decadal timescales. CLARREO Pathfinder is a technical demonstration on the ISS and a major step in reducing the cost and technical risk for these high accuracy measurements.CLARREO Pathfinder Reflected Solar (hyperspectral Type: Inclined, non-sun-synchronous
