Hide / Show Abstract

Earth exploration-satellite systems are used to gather data about the Earth and its natural phenomena. These satellites use active and/or passive sensors onboard the spacecraft to obtain data on the Earth’s land, sea, and atmosphere for the purpose of studying and monitoring the Earth’s climate and environment, amongst many other related scientific applications. Earth exploration-satellites used for weather-related purposes are known as meteorological-satellites (MetSats). MetSats can operate within the Earth exploration-satellite service or in their own more specialized service known as the meteorological-satellite service.
