Url: http://aim.hamptonu.edu/
Creator: Russell, James M.
Publisher: United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Description: The Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) "satellite mission will explore Polar Mesospheric Clouds (PMCs), also called noctilucent clouds, to find out why they form and why they are changing." The website illustrates this NASA project's scientific goals, six objectives, and importance. Users can find a list of publications and links to related news stories and articles about the project. Through a series of images, individuals can learn about the instrumentation including the Solar Occultation for Ice Experiment (SOFIE) and the Cloud Imaging and Particle Size Experiment (CIPS).
