Abstract
The POLDER experiment is described which is aimed at providing data on the atmosphere, vegetation, and oceans on the basis of the polarization and directionality measurements of solar radiation reflected by the Earth-atmosphere system. Design of the POLDER instrument is presented which is based on CCD matrix imaging through a large field of view lens. The instrument takes 15 images on a 2D detector through the successive windows of the filter wheel, then waits for an increase of the viewing angles by about 10 deg before taking another sequence of images.
