Canada's SCISAT satellite, which last year marked 10 years of actively observing more than 30 different molecules in our planet's upper and lower atmosphere, has earned a reputation for providing a unique collection of measurements that sometimes contain surprises.
SCISAT is outfitted with an optical Fourier transform infrared spectrometer and an ultraviolet spectrophotometer that can take advantage of occultation, analyzing sunlight as it passes through the atmosphere.
This accomplishment, along with the scientific surprises, has highlighted the career of Kaley Walker, a University of Toronto physicist who has served as deputy mission scientist since SCISAT went into orbit.
