ORNL DAAC Request for New GCMD Instrument: HyTES

Hi,

As we're preparing metadata for data coming out of the SHIFT airborne campaign, we find ourselves in need of a new GCMD instrument vocabulary entry, here are the details:

Short name: HyTES
Long name: Hyperspectral Thermal Emission Spectrometer
Hierarchical Path: Instruments > Earth Remote Sensing Instruments > Passive Remote Sensing > Spectrometers/Radiometers > Imaging Spectrometers/Radiometers > HyTES
Description: The Hyperspectral Thermal Emissions Spectrometer (HyTES) instrument has 512 pixels across track with pixel sizes in the range of 5 to 50 m depending on aircraft flying height and 256 spectral channels between 7.5 and 12 ┬Ám. The HyTES design is built upon a Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector (QWIP) focal plane array (FPA), a cryo-cooled Dyson Spectrometer and a high-efficiency, concave blazed grating, produced using E-beam lithography. HyTES was originally developed to support the Hyperspectral Infrared Imager (HyspIRI) mission. HyTES is useful for a number of applications, including high-resolution surface temperature and emissivity measurements, point sources of air pollution, and volcano observations.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information.

Thanks,

Hi @GCMD - tstevens, could you please help to change the 4th word of the definition from "Emissions" to "Emission"? The remaining looks good. Apologize that I initially put an extra character "s" there.

Thanks,
Yaxing
