Summary
Abstract: AMSU-A is a cross-track, line-scanned instrument designed to measure scene radiances in 15 discrete frequency channels which permit the calculation of the vertical temperature and moisture profiles from about 3 millibars (~45 km) to the Earth's surface. Each scanline contains 30 overlapping cells, each with a resolution of ~3.3 degrees (50 km at nadir). This yields a swath width of 2343 km (96.66 ... View entire text
