He was also the EOS Systems Manager responsible for the EOS system architecture and the integration of all facets of the project, and has been responsible for the adoption of common data system architecture on EOS and some other Earth orbiting spacecraft. His dedication, commitment, and tremendous contributions to the EOS program will be sorely missed.

Science Team members from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on the Aura spacecraft will participate in an EOS Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) review over the next few months. The ATBD peer review process is intended to...
