CEOS Instrument: Fourier spectrometer

Agencies: ROSHYDROMET [Primary]
Missions: Meteor-3M N2
 Meteor-M N2
Type:High-resolution nadir-scanning IR spectrometer
Description:Atmospheric temperature/humidity profiles, data on cloud parameters, water vapour&ozone column amounts, surface temperature
Spatial Resolution: 35 -100 km, spectral resolution ~0.5 cm-1
Swath Width: 1000/2000 km
Wavebands: 5 - 15 ?m, more then 5000 spectral channels
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.
