AIRS/Aqua Level 3 Monthly quantization in physical units (AIRS+AMSU) V005 (AIRX3QPM) at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_AIRX3QPM_V005
Abstract: AIRS/Aqua Level 3 monthly quantization product in physical units (Without HSB).
The quantization products (QP) are distributional summaries derived from the Level-2 standard retrieval products (of swath type) to provide a more comprehensive set of statistical summaries than the traditional means and standard deviation. The QP products combine the Level 2 standard data ... parameters over grid cells of 5 x 5 deg spatial extent for temporal periods of a month. They preserve the multivariate distributional features of the original data and so provide a compressed data set that more accurately describes the disparate atmospheric states that is in the original Level-2 swath data set.
The geophysical parameters are: Air Temperature and Water Vapor profiles (11 levels/layers), Cloud fraction (vertical distribution).
The Shortname for this product is AIRX3QPM).
