13 September 1994 Scanning imaging absorption spectrometer for atmospheric cartography (SCIAMACHY) development

SCIAMACHY (SCanning Imaging Absorption spectroMeter for Atmospheric CartograpHY) is a spectrometer developed for atmospheric space research, which covers the UV to near infrared spectral range, and is presently scheduled for flight on ENVISTAT-1 (1998). The principal scientific objective is the measurement of the global distribution of atmospheric trace gases, aerosol and cloud. Special emphasis is placed on the measurements in the stratosphere and the free troposphere. The current status of the instrument development is reported with details on the near infrared detectors. The predicted performance of the instrument in terms of signal to noise has reached an acceptable level in the infrared. Critical polarization issues have been identified and their solution is discussed.
