Paper Abstract

Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System instruments (scanners) on board the Terra and Aqua satellites have been used to meet variety of science data collection goals since their launch. Using a special programmable azimuth plan scan (PAPS) mode, a scanner collects radiation measurements of specified Earth targets or of a prescribed spatial orientation. Ongoing investigation of instruments' consistency has put some restrictions on scanning directions, partially alleviated by introducing a new elevation profile. Main objective of this paper is to explain scanning capabilities of the instruments under new conditions, and illustrate them with five different field campaigns of 2006.
