METimage instrument development status
Author(s): Oswald Wallner; Klaus Ergenzinger; Frank Schmülling

Paper Abstract

METimage is a cross-purpose, medium resolution, multi-spectral optical imaging radiometer for meteorological applications onboard the MetOp-SG satellites. It is capable of measuring thermal radiance emitted by the Earth and solar backscattered radiation in 20 spectral bands from 443 to 13.345 nm. We provide an overview over the instrument design and present the instrument development status.
