CEOS Instrument: Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment - 2

Agencies: EUMETSAT [Primary]
Missions: Metop-B
Type:High-resolution nadir-scanning SW spectrometer
Description:Measurement of total column amounts and stratospheric and tropospheric profiles of ozone. Also amounts of H20, NO2, OClO, BrO, SO2 and HCHO.
Spatial Resolution: Horizontal: 40 x 40 km (960 km swath) to 40 x 5 km (for polarization monitoring)
Swath Width: 120 - 960 km
Wavebands: UV - NIR: 0.24 - 0.79?m (resolution 0.2 - 0.4 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.
