Paper Abstract

The European weather forecasters expressed their needs for the Second Generation Meteorological satellites in the Avignon workshop, june 1984. Two optical functions are required : imaging and atmos-pheric sounding with the following main features: - imagery : notably improved from present Meteosat in terms of spatial and radiometric resolution, number of channels, repetitivity over Europe. - vertical atmospheric sounding : this new mission, performed simultaneously with the imagery, differs from the U.S. sounding mission for the future meteorological satellites (GOES, I, J, K) by a notably shorter measurement time. The requirements are analysed and their impacts on the instruments' design are discussed.
