CEOS Instrument: Geostationary Environmental Monitoring Spectrometer




Instrument:GEMS
Agencies: KARI [Primary]
 NIER
Mission: GeoKOMPSAT-2B
Status:Proposed
Type:Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description:Measurements of atmospheric chemistry, precursors of aerosols and ozone in particular, in high temporal and spatial resolution over Asia
Spatial Resolution: TBD
Swath Width: TBD
Wavebands: TBD
Technology: Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description: Used when the number of channels is high and they are too close to be separated by dichroics and filters. The instrument spreads the radiation beam by means of a spectrometer, but thereafter only a limited number of channels is selected, that generally is re-programmable. Channels bandwidths 1-3 %, spatial resolution typically 0.5-5 km. Applicable in LEO and GEO.
