AIRS/Aqua Level 2 Cloud-cleared infrared radiances (AIRS+AMSU+HSB) V005 (AIRH2CCF) at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_AIRH2CCF_V005
Abstract: This product is similar to AIRI2CCF. However, it contains science retrievals that use the Humidity Sounder for Brazil (HSB). Because the HSB instrument lived only from September 2002 through January 2003 when it terminally failed, the data set covers these five months only.
Cloud-Cleared Radiances contain calibrated, geolocated channel-by-channel AIRS infrared ... radiances (milliWatts/m2/cm-1/steradian) that would have been observed within each Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) footprint if there were no clouds in the FOV and produced along with the AIRS Standard Product, as they are the radiances used to retrieve the Standard Product. Nevertheless, they are an order of magnitude larger in data volume than the remainder of the Standard Products and, many Standard Product users are expected to have little interest in the Cloud Cleared Radiance. For these reasons they are a separate output file, but like the Standard Product, are generated at all locations.
(The Shortname for this product is AIRH2CCF).
