Future Satellite Earth Observation Requirements and Technology in Millimetre and Sub-Millimetre Wavelength Region

Authors:
Ulf Klein, Chung-Chi Lin, Joerg Langen, Peter de Maagt, Roland Meynart
Abstract:
Satellite observation of Earth's atmosphere in the millimetre and sub-millimetre wavelength region is complementary to those in the visible and infrared spectral region. The emission and opacity of the atmosphere, and scattering by ice particles are all exploited for sensing various layers of the atmosphere in terms of water vapour content, temperature, molecular composition, precipitating water and ice content. Future observation requirements for limb sounding, ice cloud imaging/sounding and meteorological observations are summarized, and corresponding instrument/system concepts meeting those requirements are described.
