Title: CALIPSO Imaging Infrared Radiometer Level 2 swath data V2-02
Description:
Abstract:
CAL_IIR_L2_Swath-Beta-V2-02 data are CALIPSO Infrared Imaging Radiometer (IIR) emissivity and cloud particle data assigned to IIR pixels on a 1 km grid centered on the Lidar track. Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) was launched on April 28, 2006 to study the impact of clouds and aerosols on the Earth's radiation budget and climate. It flies in formation with five other satellites in the international "A-Train" (PDF) constellation for coincident Earth observations. The CALIPSO satellite comprises three instruments, the Cloud-Aerosol LIdar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP), the Imaging Infrared Radiometer (IIR), and the Wide Field Camera (WFC). CALIPSO is a joint satellite mission between NASA and the French Agency, CNES.
