Paper Abstract

The Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) is intended to be flown on the First European Polar Platform (PPF) scheduled for launch in 1997. The instrument designed for ocean monitoring, is capable of transmitting 15 spectral bands programmable in width and position across the extended visible domain 400nm - 1050nm. A spatial resolution of 250m is reached on-ground, with a wide field-of-view (FOV) of 82 degrees. To achieve high radiometric performances for the images, an in-flight calibration system is required with data correction on-board in real time. Calibration coefficients will be applied on raw images to reach both a spatial and spectral uniformity of 0.05 percent, and an absolute accuracy of 2 percent.
