Paper Abstract

MERIS is designed primarily as an ocean color sensor with potential extension to land observations, which will also be utilized for atmospheric investigations. As a moderate spatial resolution, wide swath sensor, this instrument will provide data to be used as inputs to climatological, global and ecosystem models on a long-term basis. An overview is presented of the mission plan, the system design as being studied by industry, and the application objectives as derived from the user requirements.
