SCIAMACHY (Scanning Imaging Absorption Spectrometer for Atmospheric Chartography)

The SCIAMACHY instrument aboard ESA’s Envisat satellite measures upwelling radiance from the atmosphere and extraterrestrial solar irradiance in the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared wavelength region (240 nm - 2380 nm) at moderate spectral resolution (0,2 nm - 1,5 nm) and with different viewing geometries. The amount and distribution of a variety of significant atmospheric trace constituents may be retrieved from these observations.
