The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) has been designated as a facility instrument on the first NASA polar orbiting platform as part of the Earth Observing System (EOS), and is scheduled for launch in the late 1990’s. The near global daily coverage of MODIS, combined with its continuous operation, broad spectral coverage, and relatively high(More)
Under a recently-funded NASA Earth Science Technology Office (ESTO) award we are now designing, and will eventually implement, a sensor web architecture that couples future Earth observing systems with atmospheric, chemical, and oceanographic models and data assimilation systems. The end product will be a "sensor web simulator" (SWS), based upon the(More)
1. INTRODUCTION Late this decade, the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) Integrated Program Office (IPO) will initiate a new generation of passive electro-optical multispectral imagers and hyperspectral sounders to operate in three complementary orbit planes. NPOESS will replace the now-venerable civil Polar-orbiting(More)
