Paper Abstract

The AIRS is a grating spectrometer deisgne4d to obtain high- resolution absorption spectra form the atmosphere. The AIRS instrument is scheduled for launch in late 2001 or early 2002 on the Earth Observing System Aqua platform. The primary scientific objectives of AIRS are to investigate the dynamics of the atmosphere, to look for climatological changes, and to improve weather prediction. These investigations will be carried out on a global scale. The instrument acquires data in the spectral range of 3.5 micrometers to 15.4 micrometers using 2378 IR spectral channels. In addition four medium to broad band visible and near-IR channels are primarily used for diagnostics involving the presence and extent of clouds.
