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. For this particular Variable, the rating is driven by:
whether the LW irradiance is directly measured by broad-band radiometry;
whether it is interpolated from narrow-band radiometers or spectrometers.
Broad-band radiometer with LW channel
Broad-band radiometer with LW irradiance computed as Total - SW
Spectrometer covering the range 3.5-15 mm
Spectrometer covering the range 5-22 mm
Spectrometer covering the range 5-15 mm
Radiometer with channels in the MWIR and TIR windows, the H2O 6-8 mm band, and the CO2 4.3 and/or 15 mm band(s)
Radiometer with channels in the MWIR and TIR windows, and the H2O 6-8 mm band
Radiometer with channels in the TIR window, the CO2 15 mm band, and the H2O 22 mm band
