The EarthCARE satellite mission, to be launched by the European Space Agency (ESA) in 2015, is expected to provide new insights into aerosol-cloud-radiation interactions thanks to simultaneous active and passive observations of Earth's atmosphere. Here the contributions of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IPA) and Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) Munich to mission preparation are presented, including the provision of atmospheric profiles, airborne demonstrators, and instrument simulators, all essential prerequisites for a successful mission and data exploitation.
