ESA contract No.:
This international study has been led by the then department KS-AS.
The ESA project CAPACITY refers to future Operational Atmospheric Chemistry
Monitoring Missions. Here operational is meant in the sense that a reliable
service of specified information products can be established that satisfies
user needs. Monitoring is meant in the sense that long-term continuity and
consistency in the quality of the information products can be achieved.
The objectives of the project are:
To consult with user communities to develop high level information
requirements and the form of the information products.
To identify and prioritise mission objectives.
To derive mission data requirements from the high level user information
requirements and iterate these with the users.
To set these requirements against observation systems available or approved
for the future.
To identify missing information products or information products of
To define a global observation system that would satisfy user requirements.
