PLANETARY FOURIER SPECTROMETER
INFRARED REMOTE SENSING OF THE ATMOSPHERE AND SURFACEmonitoring of 3D temperature and pressure fields;
global mapping of winds;
variations of H2O and CO in space and time;
aerosols: optical depth, phase function, size distribution and chemical composition.
Main scientific objectives of the atmosphere studies:
Main scientific objectives of the surface studies:
temperature and thermophysical properties of soils;
mineralogical composition of the surface;
Instrument is a two-channel Fourier-spectrometer
