Minimize Unavailabilities due to spectral campaigns requiring temporal reprograming of MERIS

 

During the mission lifetime, MERIS has been reprogrammed to replicate some existing instruments or planned ones for calibration/validation or investigation purposes.in order to provide the Ground Segment with an understanding of the potential capabilities of a future instrument – such as CHRIS/PROBA or SENTINEL-3 - MERIS was reprogrammed to replicate the wavelengths and bandwidths of these instruments. This resulted in the instrument being unavailable for routine acquisition, and thus no data was made available to Users (see table below).
