THIRSTY is a joint mission concept study between CNES and NASA that is nearing the end of phase 0 studies. During phase 0 the group has identified the key science objectives the mission will address and begun estimating the feasibility of the mission. As its name implies, this mission concept is devoted to remotely sensing our planet in the thermal infrared (TIR) part of the electromagnetic spectrum, at a high spatial scale (resolution of a few tens of meters) coupled with a high temporal scale (revisit of less than 3 days).
