CEOS Instrument: Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment

Agency: ESA
Mission: ERS-2
Status:No longer operational
Type:High-resolution nadir-scanning SW spectrometer
Description:Measures concentration of O3, NO, NO2, BrO, H2O, O2/O4, plus aerosols and polar stratospheric clouds, and other gases in special conditions
Spatial Resolution: Vertical: 5 km (for O3), Horizontal: 40 x 40 km to 40 x 320 km
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.
