About Band 12

9.6 µm - "Ozone" Band - 2 km resolution - Band 12 will provide information both day and night about the dynamics of the atmosphere near the tropopause with high spatial and temporal resolutions. For clear (cloud-free) scenes of view, this band is cooler than the IR window bands because of absorption due to ozone.
