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, lidar)
the exploited frequency bands (windows, sounding).
Cloud or precipitation radar
MW radiometer with channels around 37 and 90 GHz, and in sounding bands (54 and/or 183 GHz)
MW radiometer with sounding channels (54 and 183 GHz) in GEO
MW radiometer with channels around 90 GHz and in sounding bands (54 and/or 118 and/or 183 GHz)
MW radiometer with channels around 90 GHz and possibly 37 GHz
Limb sounding Mm-submm spectrometer in the 60-650 GHz range
