Gap analyses by variable or by type of mission or by WIGOS subcomponent
Variable sorting criteria
Each instrument is assigned with a 5-step rating, evaluated as a blend of several elements such as the uncertainty, the vertical resolution, and the frequency and spatial resolution of the retrieved measurement in comparison with the space-time variability of the geophysical parameter. For this particular Variable, the rating is driven by:
the spectral band and resolution;
the scanning mode.(cross-nadir, limb).
High-resolution UV + VIS spectrometer
Medium-resolution UV + possibly VIS spectrometer
UV + VIS spectrometer scanning the limb mechanically or electronically
TIR spectrometer scanning the limb mechanically or electronically
UV + VIS spectrometer limb scanning by solar occultation
TIR spectrometer limb scanning by solar occultation
