CEOS Instrument: Ocean Ecosystem Spectrometer

Agency: NASA
Mission: PACE
Type:Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description:Ocean color spectrometer for measuring ocean leaving light which contains information on biological components
Spatial Resolution: 1 km
Swath Width: 2500 km swath
Wavebands: Near UV-Vis (360-710nm); NIR (748-865nm); SWIR (1245, 1640, 2135 nm)
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.
