The Aeolus satellite will provide global observations of wind profiles from space, along with information on aerosols and clouds. The Aeolus mission will not only advance our understanding of atmospheric dynamics, but will also provide much needed information to improve weather forecasts. This state-of-the-art mission will also contribute to climate research. The mission was successfully launched in August 2018 and will provide over 3 years of data to the user community. The goal of this Aeolus+ Aerosol study is to advance beyond the primary mission products and scientific objectives of Aeolus and explore the potential of this new technology in space in terms of new observation products, new science domains and new applications. Specifically this activity is dedicated on the generation of an Aerosol Optical Depth product from Aeolus.
