Radiometric Resolution

SENTINEL-3 SLSTR Radiometric Resolution

The radiometric bands of SLSTR are presented in the table below:

Table 1: The radiometric bands of SLSTR. F1 and F2 (active Fire Bands) are based on the same detectors as S7 and S8 but with an increased dynamic range to prevent saturation over fires
