CEOS Instrument: Measurements of Aerosols by Viewing Earth's Limb




Instrument:MAVELI
Agency: ISRO
Mission: ISTAG
Status:No longer considered
Type:Limb-scanning SW spectrometer
Description:Vertical profiles of aerosols, ozone and water vapour in the free troposphere and stratosphere and cloud top height
Spatial Resolution: N/A
Swath Width: N/A
Wavebands: N/A
Technology: Limb-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. Designed to provide high vertical resolution in the upper troposphere and above by scanning the Earth’s limb. Also, scanning may be performed during occultation of the sun or the moon or bright stars. Thousands of channels. Spatial resolution typically 1-3 km vertical, 300-500 km horizontal. Applicable only in LEO.
