define the GSICS Correction and their uncertainties provide quality indicators, ensuring traceability to the selected community reference, IASI. Examples are given for the Meteosat, GOES, MTSAT, FY-2 and COMS imagers. Some channels of these instruments show biases that vary with time due to variations in the thermal environment, stray light and optical(More)
A new scatterometer SeaWinds was launched onboard QuikSCAT satellite in June 1999. It observes surface wind vectors over the ocean with the swath of 1800km, which is more than three times wider than that of ERS-2 scatterometer.
