MISR Level 1A CCD Science data, all cameras V002Entry ID: MIL1A2
Abstract: MISR Level 1A camera charge-coupled device (CCD) Science Instrument Data are the primary archive of the MISR instrument. The MISR CCD Science Instrument Data acquired from all nine of the MISR cameras for each of the four bands represent the raw MISR input data staged for MISR Science Instrument Data processing. There are nine file granules of this type, one corresponding to each of the nine MISR ... cameras. Each file granule contains four entire swaths of data, one swath for each of the four MISR bands associated with each MISR camera.
The MISR instrument consists of nine pushbroom cameras which measure radiance in four spectral bands. Global coverage is achieved in nine days. The cameras are arranged with one camera pointing toward the nadir, four cameras pointing forward and four cameras pointing aftward. It takes 7 minutes for all nine cameras to view the same surface location. The view angles relative to the surface reference ellipsoid, are 0, 26.1, 45.6, 60.0, and 70.5 degrees. The spectral band shapes are nominally Gaussian, centered at 443, 555, 670, and 865 nm.
