Paper Abstract

The payload of the EOS AM-1 spacecraft consists of five scientific instruments: the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission Radiometer (ASTER), the Clouds and the Earth Radiant Energy System (CERES), the Multi-Angle Imaging Spectroradiometer (MISR), the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and the Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT) instrument. The EOS AM-1 instruments will collect data on the physical and radiative properties of clouds (ASTER, CERES, MISR, MODIS); on air-land and air-sea exchanges of energy, carbon, and water (ASTER, MISR, MODIS); and on vertical profiles of greenhouse gases (MOPITT). The EOS AM-1 spacecraft and its instruments are fully integrated and launch is expected in mid-1999.
