dc.description.abstract Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) offers a unique vantage point for atmoshperic infrared sounding. The orbit allows the entire globe to be covered each day with one satellite. The orbit is slow enough to allow mulitple views of a single target to be made on each pass. This paper discusses the advanteges in coverage and revisit rate from MEO for a particular concept for a Medium Earth Orbit Infrared Atmospheric Sounder (MIRIS). The requirements for this instrument in terms of spectral range, spatial resolution, field of view, and calibration are presented as well as the radiometric performance expectations. en_US
