Abstract: AMSU-A,the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit, is a 15-channel passive
microwave radiometer used to profile atmospheric temperature and
moisture from the earth's surface to ~45 km (3 millibars). All orbits
beginning in the day (00:00:00 - 23:59:59 UTC) are stored in one daily
HDF-EOS file. There are 15 (channel) arrays, as well as corresponding
Latitude, Longitude, and Time. Each daily file is compressed (gzip)
