Description
The Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) is a European Space
Agency (ESA) Announcement of Opportunity (AO) instrument selected for the
ENVISAT spacecraft (launched March 1, 2002). AATSR is a follow-on to the
Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (ATSR) flown on European Remote Sensing
(ERS) ERS-1 and ERS-2 spacecraft. The AATSR provided high-precision sea
surface temperature measurements and bi-directional measurements of land
surface in 10 channels: 0.470, 0.550, 0.670, 0.870, 1.240, 1.610, 3.750,
4.0, 10.85, and 12.0 micrometers. The AATSR gave a FOV of 500 meters in a
swath of 500 km for channels up to 1.6 micrometers and 1 km FOV for
channels above 1.6 micrometers. For more information see:
