SORCE Science Team News
The Science Team is busy reviewing abstracts for the upcoming SORCE Science Working Group Meeting in July. The science program looks strong, with a wide variety of scientists coming to share their expertise. A summary from the Science Meeting will be published in the July SNS Newsletter and in The Earth Observer, the EOS Project Science Office bimonthly publication.

SORCE scientists are working diligently to get all calibration files together, with the intention of having an Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD) review in August. As the Environmental Testing proceeds, the LASP instrument scientists are analyzing data from the various tests to make sure the scientific results from the instruments are valid.
