Future Satellite Earth Observation Requirements and Technology in Millimetre and Sub-Millimetre Wavelength Region

Satellite observation of Earth?s atmosphere in the millimetre and sub-millimetre wavelength region is complementary to those in the visible and infrared spectral region. The emission and opacity of the atmosphere, and scattering by ice particles are all exploited for sensing various layers of the atmosphere in terms of water vapour content, temperature, molecular composition, precipitating water and ice content. Future observation requirements for limb sounding, ice cloud imaging/sounding and meteorological observations are summarized, and corresponding instrument/system concepts meeting those requirements are described.

Dr. Ulf Klein joint the European Space Agency in 2001 and has been working in the Directorate of Earth Observation for the past 5 years. His main field of work is the development of future earth observation missions with a focus on microwave instrumentation and the initiation of the relevant technology development programs.

NB This seminar is held in the Aula on Wednesday, sep 27!!
