TanSat AGCS and CAPI products
The Atmospheric Carbon-dioxide Grating Spectrometer (ACGS) instrument is pushbroom spectrometer operating in NIR and SWIR bands which allows the measuring of CO2 mole fraction. The available ACGS products have a temporal coverage between March 2017 and January 2020 (not all days included in the time frame): L1A DS: Sample Dark Calibration sample product L1A GL: Sample Glint Sample products L1A LS: Sample Lamp Calibration sample product L1A ND: Principal-Plane Nadir Sample product L1A ZS: Sample Z-Axis Solar Calibration Sample L1B CAL DS: Sample Dark Calibration product L1B CAL LS: Sample Lamp Calibration product L1B CAL ZS: Sample Z-Axis Solar Calibration product L1B SCI GL: Sample Glint Science product L1B SCI ND: Principal-Plane Nadir Science product. The Cloud Aerosol Polarization Imager (CAPI) is a pushbroom radiometer in VIS, NIR and SWIR bands for the observation of aerosols and clouds optical properties. The CAPI products are available in a time range from July 2019 and January 2020 (not all days included in the time frame): L1A ND: Principal-Plane Nadir product L1B ND 1000M: Principal-Plane Nadir products at 1000 m resolution (1375 nm, 1640 nm) L1B ND 250M: Principal-Plane Nadir products at 250 m resolution (380 nm, 670 nm, 870 nm) L1B ND GEOQK: Principal-Plane Nadir georeferenced at 250 m resolution L1B ND GEO1K: Principal-Plane Nadir georeferenced at 1000 m resolution L1B ND OBC: Principal-Plane Nadir on-board calibrator product L2 ND CLM: Principal-Plane Nadir cloud flag product.
Mission - Third Party Missions
The TanSat mission is one of the Earth Observation projects managed by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China and is dedicated to detecting and monitoring carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
