The Sun is the main driver of various dynamic processes in the solar system including Earth as a planet. The solar energy arriving to the terrestrial surface and that returning back to space and emitted by the planet is modulated by the properties of atmosphere. Therefore, it is important to understand the atmospheric chemical composition, the dynamic processes in atmosphere, vertical profiles of various gases, aerosols, temperature, humidity, and pressure. The spatial distribution and physical characteristics of cloud systems and precipitation is also of importance both for climate studies and weather prediction.

Nowadays, the Earth is observed as a whole using various active and passive instrumentation on board of numerous satellite platforms. This enables fast determination of the atmospheric parameters globally with the re-visit times depending on the satellite platform in question. The spectral range for corresponding studies is very broad (from UV to microwaves).

In this research topic recent advances in atmospheric remote sensing (e.g., the determination of vertical columns of trace gases, various characteristics of atmospheric aerosols and clouds) using space-borne instrumentation are reported.
