JERS-1 data from Eurimage
Entry ID: EURIMAGE_JERS


[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Japanese Earth Resources Satellite was launched in February 1992. It
carries a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) instrument (L-band) and a 7 band
optical sensor package covering the near infrared and shortwave infrared
region of the spectrum. Both sensors have a ground resolution of 18 m.
The satellite has a repeat cycle of 44 days.

Eurimage distributes data acquired from ESA stations at Fucino, Tromso and
O'Higgins from 1993, thus providing coverage of Europe and Antarctica.
