Paper Abstract

An imaging spectrograph with high spectral resolution (< 0.55 nm) operating in the UV region between 300 - 320 nm is presented. The instrument uses Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) to monitor the SO2 total content in the earth's atmosphere from a sun synchronous orbit. The design of the entire instrument including wide-angle optics (+/- 57.5 degree(s)), opto- mechanics and sensor electronics (low light CCD application) and the in-flight calibration unit are described. The requirements on stability and calibration accuracy of the instrument caused by the DOAS method are outlined.
