Multi-Angle Imager for Aerosols (MAIA)
Mission Category: ESSP, Venture Class, Earth Venture-Instrument
Launch Date: 2021
Currently in development, Multi-Angle Imager for Aerosols (MAIA) uses a twin-camera instrument that will make radiometric and polarimetric measurements needed to characterize the sizes, compositions and quantities of particulate matter in air pollution. As part of the MAIA investigation, researchers will combine MAIA measurements with population health records to better understand the connections between aerosol pollutants and health problems such as adverse birth outcomes, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases and premature deaths.
