Lattes – Equars Mission
Global monitoring of the atmosphere in the equatorial region, emphasizing dynamic processes, photochemical, and mechanisms of energy transport between low, middle and upper atmosphere and ionosphere.

Topics to be investigated: monitoring the equatorial atmosphere
Troposphere: water vapor and convective cloud
Stratosphere: Temperature Range
Mesosphere: Propagation of waves and temperature
Ionosphere: Generation and propagation of plasma bubbles
