Paper Abstract

The MOS instruments on the Indian satellite IRS-P3 are now working for one year in orbit. Beside the calibration of the instrument during laboratory experiments the methods and tools of the in-orbit calibration gives a reliable basis for the interpretation of the remotely sounded data from the earth atmosphere-surface system. As a part of the in-orbit quality assurance the relative internal calibration together with the absolute recalibration with the extraterrestrial sun irradiance provides data for checking the instrument parameters. The principles of the system and the results of the one year operations are discussed.
