Paper Abstract

ENVISAT, ESA's ENVironmental research SATellite, has been launched successfully on 1 March 1st 2002. On-board, MEdium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer MERIS, is responding nominally. The results from the first six-months of in-flight verification and characterization of the instrument will be presented. The evolution of the instrument radiometric response based on the radiometric calibration results using the on-board diffusers will be discussed. The results from dedicated spectral characterization campaigns based on the spectral features of the sun (Fraunhofer), atmospheric oxygen and Erbium (doped diffuser) will be presented, and the instrument's spectral model derived will be discussed.
