CloudSat is a satellite mission designed to measure e vertical structure of clouds from space. e radar data produces detailed images of cloud structures. CloudSat is one of a constellation of satellites known as e A-Train (Cloudsat, CALIPSO, PARASOL, Aqua, Aura, GCOM-W1). e satellites fly in a nearly circular orbit wi an equatorial altitude of approximately 705 km. CloudSat will provide e first global survey of cloud properties at are crit-ical for understanding eir effects on bo wea er and climate. e key observations are vertical profiles of cloud liquid water and ice water. ese cloud properties are not obtainable from current satellite measurement systems. e mission's pri y science goal.
