SCIAMACHY Instrument Monitoring Concept

Instrument monitoring is required to

SCIAMACHY's monitoring activities occur on several timescales.

The operational longterm monitoring is embedded in the ground segments as depicted here.

Operation Segment (FOS)

In addition to SOST, it is assumed that several calibration & validation oriented groups in the SCIAMACHY ground segment do analyse SCIAMACHY data also in the light of instrument status, in particular w.r.t. the optical elements. Therefore a continuous exchange of information between SOST and these groups is required.
