There is a wealth of chemical constituent and aerosol observations now available from satellites such as Aura and Envisat. One way to use this data is to assimilate it into general circulation models, chemical transport models, and coupled climate-chemistry models. Assimilation of chemical consituents helps validate models and observations, and produces quality controlled datasets.
This session welcomes presentations from all working in this area, and also provides a forum to present to the wider community the results of the European Assimilation of Envisat Data (ASSET) project.
