This short video, which is part of a seven part video podcast series about NASA's Glory mission, explores the complexity of small airborne particles called aerosols. Aerosols play a key role in the climate system, but they remain a terra incognito of sorts for climatologists because of challenges associated with measuring the ubiquitous particles.  Glory's Aerosol Polarimetery Sensor (APS), a unique instrument that measures the polarization of light as it scatters off the aerosols, offers a new and more accurate way to measure the perplexing particles    This short video, which is part of a seven part video podcast series about NASA's Glory mission, explores the complexity of small airborne particles called aerosols.
