Ten years ago, I arrived at UIUC with a design of satellite instrument, namely the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR), and made my case that the unique remote sensing capabilities of MISR will lead to new discoveries. Since then, MISR was launched in orbit on December 18, 1999 on the EOS-Terra spacecraft and continues to supply a wealth of date to study. We have made numerous discoveries about the Earth's surface, aerosols, and clouds through the analysis of this data. My seminar will focus on several of these discoveries and paint a picture of what's to come, including the design of the follow-on mission to MISR.
