Aeolus Mission

The Aeolus satellite has reached Europe’s spaceport near Kourou in preparation for a scheduled launch on 21 August 2018. The satellite traveled by ship from Saint Nazare, western France to the Port of Cayenne, French Guiana.

The satellite should provide data on global wind-profiles especially those vertical portions in the lower 30 km. The data on the famous El Nino should be very interesting.
