GOLD in Geostationary Orbit
The GOLD instrument orbits Earth in a geostationary orbit over the western hemisphere.
The GOLD instrument will be riding as a passenger instrument onboard a commercial communications satellite positioned in geostationary orbit.
GOLD will scan the disk and limb of Earth with an ultraviolet imaging spectrograph to measure the response of Earth's ionosphere to the various forcings in the Sun-Earth system.
