1 September 1990 High-Resolution Imaging Spectrometer: a major advance in imaging spectroscopy
Author Affiliations +
HIRIS, a facility instrument on the Earth Observing System Platform, will enable scientists to both identify and interpret changes, in the global environment, at a level of detail unavailable with previous instrumentation. This instrument will make localized measurements of biological, ecological, climatological, hydrological, and geological properties, and, with its finer wavelength sampling and full spectral coverage over the wavelength region of interest, will allow these properties to be identified and studied quantitatively from space. The data obtained will be downlinked from space, processed, catalogued, stored in active archives for easy access, and distributed to users.
