Summary
Abstract: AIRS/Aqua Level-1B calibration subset including clear cases, special calibration sites, random nadir spots, and high clouds.

The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) is a facility instrument aboard thesecond Earth Observing System (EOS) polar-orbiting platform, EOS Aqua. In combination with the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) and the Humidity Sounder for Brazil (HSB), AIRS constitutes an innovative atmospheric sounding group of visible, infrared, and microwave sensors.

The AIRS Visible/Near Infrared (VIS/NIR) level 1B data set contains AIRS visible and near-infrared calibrated and geolocated radiances in W/m^2/micron/steradian. This data set is generated from AIRS level 1A digital numbers (DN), including 4 channels in the 0.4 to 1.0 um region of the spectrum.

(The Shortname for this product is AIRXBCAL).
