The ExoMars Climate Sounder (EMCS) investigation plans to map daily, global, pole-to-pole profiles of temperature, dust, water and CO2 ices, and water vapor from the proposed 2016 ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (EMTGO). The measurements cover all local times, adding a new dimension to data previously obtained from sun-synchronous spacecraft. These profiles are to be assimilated into Mars General Circulation Models (MGCMs) to generate global, interpolated fields of measured and derived parameters such as wind.
