Paper Abstract

The Scanning Imaging Absorption Spectrometer for Atmospheric Chartography (SCIAMACHY) is an instrument which measures backscattered, reflected and transmitted light from the earth's atmosphere and surface. SCIAMACHY has eight spectral channels which observe simultaneously the spectral region between 240 and 1700 nm and selected windows between 1940 and 2400 nm. Each spectral channel contains a grating and linear diode array detector. SCIAMACHY observes the atmosphere in nadir, limb, and solar and lunar occultation viewing geometries.
