Dr. Jens Oberheide has Research Highlighted by the AGU

August 5, 2020

Space Physicist Jens Oberheide is co-author on a study selected as a research highlight by the American Geophysical Union.  The Global-Scale Observations of the Limb and Disk (GOLD) instrument is the first NASA/ComSat owner-operator partnership for delivering a science payload into a geostationary orbit. GOLD’s unique observing geometry mitigates the decade-old problem of low Earth orbiting satellites to separate temporal from spatial changes in Earth’s ionosphere and thermosphere. First results from GOLD have yielded surprising discoveries that may help to develop better models of space weather, an important task for a technological society
