CEOS Instrument: Ocean and Land Colour Imager

Agencies: ESA [Primary]
Missions: Sentinel-3 A
 Sentinel-3 B
 Sentinel-3 C
Type:Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description:Marine and land services
Spatial Resolution: 300 m
Swath Width: 1270 km, across-track tilt 12.2 deg to the West
Wavebands: 21 bands in VNIR/SWIR
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.
