Overview

The CERES is a passive broadband scanning radiometer which has three spectral bands in the visible through the infrared spectral regions, and measures the Earth's radiation budget and atmospheric radiation from the top of the atmosphere to the surface of the earth. The CERES will be operated in either a cross-track scan mode or a biaxial scan mode. The primary mode will be the cross-track scan mode.
