CEOS Instrument: Measurement of Atmospheric Gases using Infrared Sp




Instrument:MAGIS
Agency: ISRO
Mission: ISTAG
Status:No longer considered
Type:High-resolution nadir-scanning IR spectrometer
Description:To study the regional/global distribution of carbon monoxide (CO)
Spatial Resolution: N/A
Swath Width: N/A
Wavebands: N/A
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.
