Abstract: This is AIRS-AMSU-CloudSat collocation indexes, in ASCII format. These data map CloudSat profile indexes to the collocated AMSU field of views, and AIRS IR footprints, per AIRS 6-min granule time. Hence it can be considered as Level 1. These data are created within the frames of the MEaSUREs project.

The basic task is to bring together retrievals of water vapor and cloud properties from multiple ... View entire text
