25 July 1989 Rosis - An Imaging Spectrometer For Rejiote Sensing Of Chlorophyll Fluorescence
Author Affiliations +
The "Reflective Optics System Imaging Spectrometer" (ROSIS) is a compact, programmable imaging spetrometer based on a CCD matrix detector array. The instrument has been designed specifically for the monitoring of water color and of natural chlorophyll fluorescence in order to quantitatively derive pigments, suspended matter and yellow substance distributions in the marine environment. However, its high spectral resolution of ≤ 5 nm also permits many new applications in atmospheric physics and vegetation monitoring. An airborne prototype of ROSIS is jointly developed at present by M BB, GKSS and DFVLR. The instrument concept, the scope of applications and the relationship to ESA's Earth Observation Programme and to NASA's Earth Observation System is discussed.
