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:
the exploited measurement technique (radar, MW radiometry, optical radiometry, lidar)
the exploited frequency bands in MW (windows, sounding) or optical (VIS, NIR, SWIR, MWIR).
Cloud or precipitation radar
MW radiometer with channels around 90 and possibly 37 GHz, and in sounding bands (54 and/or 118 and/or 183 GHz)
MW radiometer with sounding channels (54 and 183 GHz) in GEO
Radiometer with channels in VIS + NIR + SWIR + MWIR
Radiometer with chnnels in VIS + MWIR + (NIR or SWIR)
Radiometer or spectrometer with channels in MWIR + [VIS or (NIR + SWIR)]
Radiometer or spectrometer with channels in VIS + NIR + SWIR
Radiometer or spectrometer with channels in NIR + (VIS or SWIR)
