VIRS Image


  • TRMM Solar Array Anomaly(Oct.22 2002)


  • Overview

    The VIRS is a passive cross-track scanning radiometer which measures scene radiance in five spectral bands operating in the visible through the infrared spectral regions. Comparison of the microwave, visible and infrared data is expected to provide the means whereby precipitation will be estimated more conclusively than by visible and infrared data alone.

    Swath Width About 720 km
    Scan Mode Cross-Track Scan
    Data Rate 50 kbps
    Weight 34.5 kg
