Sub-Zero Science

The Space Science and Remote Sensing research group joined CSL in the 1990s. Its work took researchers from one end of the planet to the other - literally.

From the North Pole…
CSL researchers flew over the North Pole and made the first-ever temperature measurements in the middle atmosphere above that region.

…To the South Pole
Researchers began constructing a temperature profile at the South Pole from base altitude up to a height of 65 miles - something no other system had managed to do. One goal was to come up with a data set that can be used as a reality check for weather models.
