Abstract: The MISR Level 3 Joint Aerosol product contains global statistical summaries of MISR Level 2 aerosol optical depth, on a 5 degree geographic grid. Within each grid cell, optical depth is summarized by a set of representative vectors, each representing a cluster of similar Level-2 aerosol optical depth retrievals. Data is summarized monthly.

The MISR instrument consists of nine pushbroom cameras ... View entire text
