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 TIR spectrometer
High-resolution UV spectrometer
Medium-resolution TIR spectrometer
Medium-resolution UV spectrometer
Coarse-resolution TIR spectrometer
TIR spectrometer scanning the limb mechanically or electronically
UV spectrometer limb scanning by star occultation
UV spectrometer limb scanning by solar occultation
TIR spectrometer limb scanning by solar occultation
