MISR Level 1B1 Local Mode Radiance Data V002Entry ID: MIB1LM2
Abstract: The MISR Local Mode Level 1B1 Product contains the data numbers (DNs) radiometrically scaled to radiances with no geometric resampling.
The MISR Level 1B1 Radiance data product contains spectral radiances for all MISR channels. Each radiance value represents the incident radiance averaged over the sensor's total band response. Processing includes both radiance scaling and conditioning steps. ... Radiance scaling converts the Level 1A data from digital counts to radiances, using coefficients derived in combination with the On-Board Calibrator (OBC) and vicarious calibrations. The OBC contains Spectralon calibration panels which are deployed monthly and reflect sunlight into cameras. The OBC detector standards then measure this reflected light to provide the calibration.
No out-of-band correction is done for this product, nor are the data
geometrically corrected or resampled.
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.
