FY3A VIRR Monthly Mean Total Precipitable Water Level 3 ProductEntry ID: FY3A_VIRR_TPW_monthly_L3
Abstract: Monthly mean VIRR Total Precipitible Water:
VIRR Total Precipitable Water is retrieved by the physically split window method with the multi-channel datasets based on the fact that the water vapor will produce the different transmittance between channels in the infrared window region. It is a global product generated from the VIRR L2 granule TPW.
Purpose: Monthly mean VIRR Total Precipitible Water:
Used as the input parameter of weather prediction model and climatic model, also as the important input parameter of atmospheric correction for land surface remote sensing.
