Paper Abstract

An IR sounder instrument for the Second Generation Meteosat satellite will be required to measure Earth radiance in a large number of narrow wavebands in the thermal IR region. A design concept for the sounder is described, based on use of a spectrometer to define the wavebands. With significant developments outlined, a spectrometer system appears preferable to the more conventional configurations based only on use of filters.
