Abstract
This paper describes a design for the Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS), which has been proposed as a candidate core instrument for the European Polar Platform scheduled for launch in 1997. The instrument has a spectral range of 400 to 1050nm, a swath width of 1500km, spectral resolution of 1.25nm and spatial resolution of 260m. The instrument has applications in the fields of marine, land and atmospheric research.
