MetOp orbits Earth in 100 minutes
- Title MetOp orbits Earth in 100 minutes
- Released 26/06/2006 11:17 am
- Copyright ESA/AOES Medialab
During the time it takes for MetOp to complete one orbit, Earth has rotated around 25°. This means observations are made over a different part of Earth in each orbit. Different instruments have different swath widths and therefore take different times to observe the entire planet.
