AMSR-E/Aqua L2 (JAXA/EOC)Entry ID: ND03004
Abstract: The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System
(AMSR-E) instrument on the NASA EOS Aqua satellite provides global
passive microwave measurements of land, ocean, and atmospheric
parameters for the investigation of global water and energy cycles.
Measurements of ocean parameters improve our understanding of a wide
variety of hydrological and radiative processes, including ... air-sea and
air-ice interactions. AMSR-E ocean products include measurements of
sea surface temperature, near-surface wind speed, and water vapor and
cloud liquid water over the oceans.
1. The amount of physics is computed based on Leve1B data.
2. Geometrical information is added by LEVEL2 like Level1B. Also,
quality information and addition information (time and the orbit for
every scan which are based on TA193 (The total second from 1993) at
international electronic time) are stored.
3. Data storage size is equivalent to level1B (line of pixels).
4. Data size is the size of the estimate for every unit.
