Paper Abstract

The combined performance of the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua spacecraft is possible in a single instrument with today's technology. Combining the capability allows better accuracy and resolution of products produced by both instruments. This paper describes the top level requirements expected from such an instrument, the types of products anticipated, and discusses technology readiness.
