GSICS Instrument Information Kiosk

Information Kiosk; a picture Satellite instrument inter-calibration activities often require technical information, such as sensor imaging resolution, scanning patterns, spectral response, calibration methodologies, data format, etc. To alleviate the need to search throughout the web for this information pertaining to the satellites instruments used as part of GSICS inter-comparison analyses, links are given here to this important information.


WMO OSCAR; a picture Observing Systems Capability Analysis and Review Tool (OSCAR) is a resource developed by WMO in support of Earth Observation applications, studies and global coordination. It contains quantitative user-defined requirements for observation of physical variables in application areas of WMO (i.e. related to weather, water and climate). OSCAR also provides detailed information on all earth observation satellites and instruments, and expert analyses of space-based capabilities. more information
