CEOS Instrument: Ultra-violet Visible Near-infrared Shortwave-infrared spectrometer




Instrument:UVNS (Sentinel-5)
Agencies: ESA [Primary]
 EC
Mission: Sentinel-5
Status:Proposed
Type:High-resolution nadir-scanning SW spectrometer
Description:Supporting atmospheric composition and air quality monitoring services
Spatial Resolution: 5 - 15 km at SSP, possibly relaxed to 50 km for wavelengths < 300 nm
Swath Width: Daily global coverage
Wavebands: UV-1: 270 - 300 nm, UV-2: 300-400 nm, VIS: 400-500 nm, NIR: 710-775 nm, SWIR-1: 1593-1672 nm, SWIR-2: 1940-2030 nm, SWIR-3: 2305-2385 nm
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.
