This satellite examines our planet using 13 distinct bands, three of which focus specifically on the "red edge" part of the spectrum. This is the first optical satellite to have 3 bands in the red edge, and is particularly useful for examining vegetation. Taking lessons learned from both USGS's Landsat and France's SPOT -- the Sentinel-2 mission will provide 1Terabyte per day of new Earth observation data.

 

TES dataset

Provider: NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)

Capability:

  • Continual spectral coverage between 3.2 and 15. 4 nanometers  

Launch Date: July 15, 2004

Description: The Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer, TES, is the first satellite instrument to provide simultaneous concentrations of carbon monoxide, ozone, water vapor and methane throughout Earth’s lower atmosphere. This is also where gases such as ozone (O3) are formed, transported, and interact with other gases, and where much of the atmospheric water cycle is dictated. Understanding the distribution and movement of these and other trace gases is vital if we are to understand and correctly represent climate and air quality.

 
OCO02 data - circle.png

OCO-2 dataset

Provider: NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)

Capability:

  • Wavelength bands of Weak CO2, Strong CO2, and Strong O2

Launch Date:  February 24, 2009

Description:  OCO­2 is an exploratory science mission designed to collect space­based global measurements of atmospheric CO2 with the precision, resolution, and coverage needed to characterize sources and sinks (fluxes) on regional scales (≥1000km). OCO­2 will also be able to quantify CO2 variability over the seasonal cycles year after year. This mission will also validate a space­based measurement approach and analysis concept that could be used for future systematic CO2 monitoring missions.

 
mopitt data - circle.png

MOPITT dataset

Provider: NASA Earth Observing System (EOS)

Capability:

  • 4.7 nanometer channel and 2.2 - 2. 4 nanometer infrared channels

Launch Date: December 18, 1999

Description: Measurement of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT) is an instrument designed to enhance our knowledge of the lower atmosphere and to observe how it interacts with the land and ocean biospheres. MOPITT’s specific focus is on the distribution, transport, sources, and sinks of carbon monoxide in the troposphere. Carbon monoxide, which is expelled from factories, cars, and forest fires, hinders the atmosphere’s natural ability to rid itself of harmful pollutants. MOPITT is the first satellite sensor to use gas correlation spectroscopy. The sensor measures emitted and reflected radiance from the Earth in three spectral bands. As this light enters the sensor, it passes along two different paths through onboard containers of carbon monoxide. The different paths absorb different amounts of energy, leading to small differences in the resulting signals that correlate with the presence of these gases in the atmosphere.

 
Landsat-8 data - circle.png

LANDSAT-8 dataset

ProviderUSGS

Capability

  • Panchromatic (black & white), Coastal / Aerosol, Blue, Green, Red, NIR, Short Wavelength IR (2 bands), Cirrus, Long Wavelength IR / Thermal (2 bands)

Resolution: 15 m panchromatic, 30 m multispectral, 100 m thermal

Revisit Rate: 16 days

Description: Landsat-8 is a low resolution, optical imaging satellite. The craft was developed as a collaboration between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). NASA led the design, construction, launch, and on-orbit calibration phases, during which time the satellite was called the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM). On May 30, 2013, USGS took over routine operations and the craft joined the Landsat family of satellites. Landsat imagery is most widely used within the Google Maps and Google Earth applications - recently replacing the services of its predecessor Landsat 7. USGS leads post-launch calibration activities, satellite operations, data product generation, and data archiving at the Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) center.

 
gosat data - circle.png

GOSAT/ACOS dataset

Provider: Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency  (JAXA)

Capability

  • 4 infrared channels (FTS instrument)
  • 4 NIR channels (CAI instrument)

Launch Date: January 23, 2009

Description: The Greenhouse Gases Observing Satellite "IBUKI" (GOSAT) is the world's first spacecraft to measure the concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane, the two major greenhouse gases, from space. The spacecraft was launched successfully on January 23, 2009, and has been operating properly since then. Through analyzing the GOSAT observational data, scientists will be able to ascertain the global distribution of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) and methane (CH4 ), and how the sources and sinks of these gases vary with seasons, years, and locations. These new findings will enhance scientific understanding on the causes of global warming. Also, they will serve as fundamental information for improving climate change prediction and establishing sound plans for mitigating global warming. It measures densities of carbon dioxide and methane from 56,000 locations on the Earth's atmosphere.

 
AIRS data - circle.png

AIRS dataset

Provider: NASA Jet Propulsion Lab

Capability

  • 2378 infrared channels and 4 visable/NIR channels (AIRS instrument - hyperspectral)
  • 15 microwave channels (AMSU-A instrument)
  • 4 microwave channels (HSB instrument)

Launch Date: May 4, 2002

Description: The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder, AIRS, moves climate research and weather prediction into the 21st century. AIRS is one of six instruments aboard Aqua, a satellite that is part of NASA's Earth Observing System. AIRS along with its partner microwave instrument the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU­A), represents the most advanced atmospheric sounding system ever deployed in space. Together these instruments observe the global water and energy cycles, climate variation and trends, and the response of the climate system to increased greenhouse gases. AIRS uses cutting­ edge infrared technology to create three­dimensional maps of air and surface temperature, water vapor, and cloud properties. With 2378 spectral channels, AIRS has a spectral resolution more than 100 times greater than previous infrared sounders and provides more accurate information on the vertical profiles of atmospheric temperature and moisture. AIRS can also measure trace greenhouse gases such as ozone, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and methane.
