Caption: Daily coverage of the Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer (CIMR) mission. The colormap shows the number of revisits during a 24 hours period. Arctic, Antarctic, and Global views are presented.

The CIMR mission is specifically designed to ensure sub-daily coverage everywhere in the Arctic region, so as to support the Integrated EU Arctic Policy. Particularly, CIMR will achieve full sub-daily coverage of the Arctic Ocean and adjacent seas (including "no hole at the pole").

By symmetry, the excellent coverage will also be available over the Antarctic region.

More than 95% of the globe will be covered on a daily basis.
