Abstract (Document Summary)

Cloudsat is a new spacecraft that will be launched in 2003 to study the clouds. It will use radar to take 3-D pictures of clouds, and measure how much water and ice are in them at various heights. Cloudsat will work with other satellites that take different kinds of cloud measurements. Data collected by all these satellites will help scientists understand better how clouds work and how they affect climate all over the world.
