The ENVISAT-1 satellite, launched
March 1st 2002, carries ten instruments, three of which are aimed at
atmospheric research, MIPAS, GOMOS and SCIAMACHY, and two aimed at observing
land surface and oceans, MERIS and AATSR.
Data Assimilation is a type of model
calculation, where real measurement results are assimilated to improve
the accuracy of the calculations. The ASSET project uses measurements
from ENVISAT instruments in combination with several computational models.
home page of the ASSET project
is situated at NERC. Here at the nadir data centre, NILU maintains a collection
of data files and tools for the ASSET project participants. The pages are
currently under construction, a message will be sent to ASSET participants
when the pages are usable.
