Ceres Scanning Swath

Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) will measure the Earth's energy balance–comparing the amount of energy from the sun that reaches the Earth's surface vs. the amount of heat energy emitted by the Earth and its atmosphere. This animation shows the pattern of CERES' scanning mirrors (there are two instruments on Terra).
