CEOS Instrument: Ocean Colour Monitor




Instrument:OCM
Agency: ISRO
Missions: IRS-P4
 OCEANSAT-2
 OCEANSAT-1
Status:Operational
Type:Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description:Ocean colour data, Estimation of phytoplankton concentration, identification of potential fishing zones, assessment of primary productivity
Spatial Resolution: 236 x 360m
Swath Width: 1440 km
Wavebands: VIS - NIR: 0.40 - 0.88 ?m (8 channels)
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.
