AIRS/Aqua Level 2 Standard physical retrieval (AIRS+AMSU+HSB) V005 (AIRH2RET) at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_AIRH2RET_V005
Abstract: This product is similar to AIRX2RET. 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 Standard Retrieval Product consists of retrieved estimates of cloud and surface ... properties, plus profiles of retrieved temperature, water vapor, ozone, carbon monoxide and methane. Estimates of the errors associated with these quantities will also be part of the Standard Product. The temperature profile vertical resolution is 28 levels total between 1100 mb and 0.1 mb, while moisture profile is reported at 14 atmospheric layers between 1100 mb and 50 mb. The horizontal resolution is 50 km. An AIRS granule has been set as 6 minutes of data, 30 footprints cross track by 45 lines along track.
(The Shortname for this product is AIRH2RET).
