Image: CERES scan lines

Schematic of the CERES scan lines as the Aqua satellite passes over South America. The scan lines from the CERES operating in the fixed azimuth plane scanning mode are all perpendicular to the orbital ground track, systematically lined up like a TV raster scan. The scan lines from the CERES operating in the rotating azimuth plane scanning mode appear closer to pinwheels when mapped onto the Earth, sampling a wide range of viewing angles.
