ANN's Daily Aero-Term (04.26.09):

Aero-Terms!

Aero-Terms are designed to be a daily reminder of the terms, names, acronyms and explanations of the unique language that populates the aviation world. Aerospace, sport aviation, fixed wing, helo, you name it... it's all fair game.

Aero-Terms should serve as a quick but intriguing reminder of the terms you may use every day, or an introduction to an aspects of the Aero-World you may not yet be familiar with. ANN also encourages readers to go beyond the FMI link, and further research any intriguing terms.

Suggestions for future Aero-Terms are ALWAYS welcome, as are additions or discussion of the explanations given for each Aero-Term.

UARS (Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite) 

NASA satellite designed to study the physical and chemical processes taking place in Earth's upper atmosphere, between 15 and 100 km. UARS provides measurements of atmospheric internal structure (trace constituents, physical dynamics, radiative emission, thermal structure, density) and measurements of the external influences acting upon the upper atmosphere (solar radiation, tropospheric conditions, electric fields). The specific UARS mission objectives are to study 1) energy input and loss in the upper atmosphere, 2) global photochemistry of the upper atmosphere, 3) dynamics of the upper atmosphere, 4) coupling among these processes, 5) coupling between the upper and lower atmosphere.
