(1) smallest change in a quantity being measured that causes a perceptible change in the corresponding indication

(2) the least angular/linear/temporal/spectral distance between two identical point sources of radiation that can be distinguished according to a given criterion,

(3) the least vertical/geographical/temporal distance between two identical atmospheric features that can be distinguished in a gridded numerical product or in time series of measurements; resolution is equal to or coarser than vertical/geographical/temporal sampling of the grid or the measurement time series

Need something about resolution of an imaging instrument and to distinguish spectral, spatial and temporal resolutions.

Probably need multiple separate types of resolution
