Each instrument is assigned with a 5-step rating, evaluated as a blend of several elements such as the uncertainty, the vertical resolution, and the frequency and spatial resolution of the retrieved measurement in comparison with the space-time variability of the geophysical parameter. For this particular Variable, the rating is driven by:
the spectral range (UV or Mm-submm);
the scanning mode.(cross-nadir, limb).
High-resolution UV spectrometer
UV spectrometer scanning the limb mechanically or electronically
UV spectrometer limb scanning by star occultation
UV spectrometer limb scanning by solar occultation
