 Meteor-3 N8
Status:No longer operational
Type:Narrow-band channel IR radiometer
Description:Vertical profiles of temperature, humidity, and ozone
Spatial Resolution: 42 km
Swath Width: 1000 km
Wavebands: TIR-FIR 18 ?m (water absorption), 13.33 ?m, 13.70 ?m, 14.24 ?m, 14.43 ?m, 14.75 ?m, 15.02 ?m (carbon dioxide), 11 ?m (transparent), 9.6 ?m (ozone)
Technology: Narrow-band channel IR radiometer
Description: Radiometer operating in MWIR and TIR with many channels of bandwidth around 1 % in absorption bands of CO2 and H2O to retrieve temperature and humidity profiles in cloud-free or partially cloudy areas. Cross-nadir scanning for vertical profiling. A few tens of channels. Spatial resolution typically 10-20 km horizontal, ~ 2 km vertical (referred to the retrieved profile). Applicable in LEO and GEO.
