Aqua satellite mission continues transmitting high-quality data about Earth's atmosphere, oceans, ice, land and vegetation from four of its six instruments, AIRS, AMSU, CERES, and MODIS, and reduced quality data from a fifth instrument, AMSR-E. The sixth Aqua instrument, HSB, collected approximately nine months of high quality data but failed in February 2003.
