THE CEOS DATABASE : Missions, Instruments and Measurements
Full Name Nadir Imager Status Operational
Instrument Agencies SNSA Maturity
Instrument Type Imaging multi-spectral radiometers (vis/IR) Geometry Nadir-viewing
Instrument Technology Limb-scanning IR spectrometer Sampling
Data Access Data Format
Measurements and Applications Takes pictures of atmospheric band emissions from below the satellite. This provides complementary information on smaller spatial scales, albeit restricted to a single spectral channel. Because of the nadir instruments susceptibility to the background light of the lower atmosphere, the nadir imaging will be restricted to the night-side of the terminator. The nadir instrument is basically a wide-angle camera.
