CEOS Instrument: High Resolution VNIR Spectrometer

Agency: ISRO
Missions: Environsat-1
Type:High-resolution nadir-scanning IR spectrometer
Description:information on Aerosols & CO2 gas concentration
Spatial Resolution: 0.375-0.9 Ám
Swath Width: 500 km
Wavebands: N/A
Technology: High-resolution nadir-scanning IR spectrometer
Description: Spectrometer operating in MWIR and TIR with spectral resolution typically around 0.01 % required for atmospheric chemistry. Earth viewing so as to measure vertical profiles and total columns in cloud-free or partially cloudy areas. Cross-nadir scanning for vertical profiling and total-columns. Many thousands of channels. Spatial resolution typically 5-10 km horizontal, ~ 1 km vertical (referred to the retrieved profiles). Applicable only in LEO.
