Description
[Source: NPOESS home page: http://npoess.noaa.gov/index.php?pg=crimss ]

The Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS) combined with the Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (ATMS) globally produces atmospheric temperature, moisture and pressure profiles from space. CrIS and ATMS (CrIMSS) are the next generation operational sensor suite selected to fly on the National Polar- orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS) spacecraft. CrIMSS will operationally produce high vertical resolution profile measurements of temperature, water vapor, and pressure. Combining both cross-track infrared and microwave sensors aboard the NPOESS satellite provides key Environmental Data Records (EDRs) CrIMSSMission Products
