Hi,

The ORNL DAAC needs a new GCMD instrument vocabulary entry, here are the details:

Instrument Abbreviation: Mako
Instrument Full Name: Mako Airborne Thermal Infrared Imaging Spectrometer
Hierarchical Path: Instruments > Earth Remote Sensing Instruments > Passive Remote Sensing > Spectrometers/Radiometers > Imaging Spectrometers/Radiometers > Mako

Description: The Mako Airborne Thermal Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (also known as Mako) is an airborne remote sensing instrument. Mako is used to measure the brightness temperature of the land surface as well as infrared radiation. Mako operates between 7.6 and 13.2 µm at a spectral sampling of 44 nm in 128 spectral channels. It flies in a DeHavilland DHC-6 Twin Otter and has a spatial resolution of about 2 m. Mako has a similar operating principle to multiple satellite instruments, making it useful for validation and comparison.

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

Thanks,
Yaxing
