CEOS Instrument: Solar Ultraviolet Imager

Agency: NOAA
Missions: GOES-R
Status:Being developed
Type:Solar irradiance monitor
Description:The SUVI will monitor the entire dynamic range of solar x-ray features, including coronal holes and solar flares, and will provide quantitative estimates of the physical conditions in the Suns atmosphere
Spatial Resolution: N/A
Swath Width: N/A
Wavebands: N/A
Technology: Solar irradiance monitor
Description: Observes radiation coming from the Sun, either integrated (i.e., in the interval 0.2-10 m, observed by cavity radiometers) or spectrally resolved (e.g., in the interval 0.2-2 m, observed by a spectrometer), or for special features (X-rays, UV, etc,). Applicable in LEO and GEO.
