AIRS/Aqua Level 3 Monthly standard physical retrieval (AIRS+AMSU+HSB) V005 (AIRH3STM) at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_AIRH3STM_V005
Abstract: This product is similar to AIRX3STM. However, it contains science retrievals that use the Humidity Sounder for Brazil (HSB). Because the HSB instrument lived only from September 2002 through January 2003 when it terminally failed, the data set covers these five months only.
The AIRS Level 3 Monthly Gridded Retrieval Product contains standard ... retrieval means, standard deviations and input counts. Each file covers a calendar month. The mean values are simply the arithmetic means of the daily products, weighted by the number of input counts for each day in that grid box.
The geophysical parameters have been averaged and binned into 1 x 1 grid cells, from -180.0 to +180.0 deg longitude and from -90.0 to +90.0 deg latitude. For each grid map of 4-byte floating-point mean values there is a corresponding 4-byte floating-point map of standard deviation and a 2-byte integer grid map of counts. The counts map provides the user with the number of points per bin that were included in the mean and can be used to generate custom multi-day maps from the daily gridded products.
The geophysical parameters are: Skin Temperature, Surface Air Temperature, Air Temperature, Tropopause, Precipitable Water, Water Vapor, Cloud Amount/Frequency, Cloud Height, Cloud Top Pressure, Cloud Top Temperature, Reflectance, Emissivity, Sea Surface Temperature, Ozone, Surface Pressure, Cloud Vertical Distribution.
(The Shortname for this product is AIRH3STM).
