The use of advanced remote sensing techniques to observe and characterize the global atmosphere will be presented. Current and planned techniques for observing temperature profiles, atmospheric pressure, cloud and aerosol properties, water vapor profiles, winds, and chemical composition will be discussed for the troposphere and the stratosphere. New aircraft experiments for active sensing of the atmosphere will be discussed. Data from the current operational meteorological satellites and research satellite missions will be summarized. Recent results from the Upper Atmospheric Research Satellite (UARS), the Nimbus-7 and Meteor-3 Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) instruments, and the Shuttle Atmospheric Laboratory for Applications and Science (ATLAS) will be presented. New measurements planned for the Global Change Research Program, Mission to Planet Earth, the International Earth Observing System (EOS), and future Earth Probe missions will be summarized.
