CEOS Instrument: Measurements Of Pollution In The Troposphere




Instrument:MOPITT
Agencies: CSA [Primary]
 NASA
Mission: Terra
Status:Operational
Type:High-resolution nadir-scanning SW spectrometer
Description:Measurements of CO in the troposphere
Spatial Resolution: CO profile: 4 km vertical, 22 x 22 km horizontal, CO, CH4 column: 22x22 km horizontal
Swath Width: 616 km
Wavebands: SWIR-MWIR: 2.3 ?m, 2.4 ?m and 4.7 ?m
Technology: High-resolution nadir-scanning SW spectrometer
Description: Spectrometers to cover bands in UV, Vis, NIR and SWIR with spectral resolution typically of 0.1-0.3 %, required for atmospheric chemistry. Earth viewing so as to measure vertical profiles and total columns. Thousands of channels. Spatial resolution typically 2-20 km. Applicable in LEO and GEO.
