Summary
Abstract: ABSTRACT: The IASI level 2 files are NOAA-unique retrieval products generated from the IASI level 1C, AMUS-A , and MHS data files aboard the MetOp series of satellites. The level 2 product contains profiles of temperature, water vapor, and trace gases (CO2, CO, O3, CH4, N2O, SO2, HNO3). The IASI retrieval footprint is derived from the IASI field of regard consisting of the 2X2 field of view ... View entire text

Purpose: PURPOSE: For temperature, moisture, and trace gas data assimilation into numerical weather prediction models and climate reprocessing.

Quality LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: All the input IASI data are processed from level-0 to level-1C at EUMETSAT. All the AMSU-A and MHS data are processed from level-0 to level-1B at NOAA. Both agencies generate quality flags for their data. The NOAA IASI product processing system receives these input data and generates retrieved profiles of temperature, moisture and trace gases on the IASI fields of ... View entire text
