CEOS Instrument: Ocean Colour Monitor (Oceansat-3/3A)

Instrument:OCM (Oceansat-3/3A)
Agency: ISRO
Missions: OCEANSAT-3
Type:Medium-resolution spectro-radiometer
Description:Ocean colour data, Estimation of phytoplankton concentration, identification of potential fishing zones, assessment of primary productivity
Spatial Resolution: N/A
Swath Width: N/A
Wavebands: 12 channel
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.
